Good explantory exhibition when you first go in. Unfortunately, most of it was in Catalan (can manage Castillian but not Catalan). However, the lovely helpful chap on reception gave me a book in English, and also answered a few questions I had. Vissited on a...More

the paleocristian Necropolis is located at the outskirt of the city center, but still in walking distance, just off the Central Park behind the bus station. Not all too much to see, but why not...

Interesting experience of the dark world of death an tombs. Cryptic tomb was the most interesting. Very few people and deserted attraction, perhaps a bit far from the old town. Ticket is free if you buy a ticket to Archaeology museum.

Totally fascinating. A short introduction with photographs and video within the museum then outside the amazing exhibitits revealing the paleochristian burial practices from 1st and 2nd centuries and the lay out of a Roman villa with unknown history. A full half day
