Our tour guide told us about this, we never would have discovered it if it wasn't for her. At €7 each we weren't expecting much, but I was spellbound by the whole underground experience, taking the walkways through the amazing roman ruins underneath the street...More

Lovely chilled bar over looking the port at Barceloneta. Gorgeous at sunset usually with a DJ on playing chilled music, with lovely views and a very nice vibe. Would recommend with both friends and family.

This is a fascinating and very well presented view of the Roman remains upon which Barcelona was built. Underground, walkways with interactive displays explain the archeological excavations of homes and business.

It was one of my favourite museums in Europe. Museu d'Historia de Barcelona doesn't seem like much from the outside. Unassuming when you first take the elevator two stories down. Yes, it was just an old Roman brick wall you're looking at. But once, you've...More

Nice museum which explains well the early history of Barcelona. Not very interactive though and only some information is available in English. The best part is the underground where you can see ruins from Roman times.

The museum of history in Barcelona is very well hidden, but it is one of the best places i've been to in a long time. As you walk in you are given a headset which provides all different languages and it instructs you on which...More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood 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
