  • Its like travelling time going from the romans to the spanish inquisition. Its a well preserved archaeological site that has a fascinating history.  more »
  • We stumbled upon this unique and beautiful building and really enjoyed the views from the courtyard area. It was closed when we were there, but the building itself is stunning!  more »

  • Barcelona does not do art museums well as although there are many artists of great renown from here their main pieces are elsewhere. But Barcelona does history museums amazingly well. This is my favorite. You can rush through it or meander and get lots out of it and an idea of the past of the region and space.
  • This is amazing. You never know what's beneath your feet. Some of the audio guide runs out before you have the whole story, and doesn't quite match to where you are. Take your time and imagine what came before.
