Another tiny slice of Roman history. Originally on the road to the Roman centre of Barcelona, a set of ancient tombs remain. Set below the existing ground level there are several places to view the row of tombs.
This Roman Necropolis, hidden for centuries under buildings demolished after the civil war, is just a few seconds off the top of the Rambla-go down Carrer Canuda. Entry is free if you have visited MUBHA or else a token euro but you can just as...More
These Roman ruins are housed in a small square and can be seen from a viewing walkway above if the actual entrance doors are closed. They are housed within the Gothic Quarter but I wouldn't go out of your way to view them if you're...More
It is located in Placa Villa de Madrid in the Old Town (Ciutat Vella) section. It is pretty close to La Rambla. In the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD, Romans built their cemeteries outside of the city's walls and this excavation discovery of 70 tombs...More
A very interesting stop on our walking tour. One can view these graves from the street level. So much history in this area. They say that you can view the tombs up close but the entry passage was not accessible during our stopover. Such a...More
The remains can be seen, although many times the walkway is closed and unaccessible. You might want to take a look only if you happen to be in the area. Otherwise not a place you want to bother to find if it's out of your...More
Its not very big and easy missed but is worth a quick stop if you are in the area, considering they are 2000 years old it is quite surreal to see it against the newer built up buildings around it and reminds you of the...More

I'm a huge fan of italy and any chance I get to check out the local roman ruins, I'm there.
The Via Sepulcral Romana is very important. You can get right above the ruins, for free and get up close and get some nice photos....More
This is a small group of old Roman tombs in the middle of a square off La Rambla. The history is very interesting. I'm glad to see they built around the tombs and made them visible from street level (they are actually below street level)....More
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local
musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
