“A Little Known Spark of History”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

A tour of Barcelona is incomplete unless you have seen this well preserved Roman excavation in a suburb called Badalona. Those responsible for the preservation and the current museum have achieved a magnificent display. The museum is not marketed well or widely appreciated. This is compounded in Badalona as there are no street signs for the museum despite the local metro station celebrating Badalona's history with a large Roman text across it's station walls. The museum is suitable for all ages and you can see examples for the origin for our contemporary lifestyle. Telephone the museum ahead of a visit to make sure that all the displays are open (aqua duct etc).

“Remains of a Roman Harbour Town”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Under the streets of modern Badalona is a complex of shops, houses, paths and roads dating from the early Roman Empire/late Republic, when this was a prosperous wine exporting town. The main display is available all week under the museum but at weekends you can also visit a nearby garden, villa and water-duct (for the latter ask at the villa as it needs to be opened specially).

For those who like Roman history this is a very evocative site, well presented and worth the short journey from Barcelona.
