  • I was stunned to find such a well preserved piece of Barcelona's history, knowing nothing about El Born beforehand. This is yet another place well worth visiting if you can fit it in for the sheer amount of information in there about life in Barcelona for as far back as the 18th Century. There's also a great gift shop and bar that offers a locally founded beer 'Moritz' that is worth a try.
  • The old Roman city with a multitude of expansions made to the late 1700's. Fantastic attached side museums of all the discovered artifacts and descriptions of daily life in the various timer periods. The free part is the open site with overlooking terraces. There are detailed signs everywhere depicting different buildings below and their functions. From standard Roman homes to a Brandy Destillerie in the 1700s. One can easily spend 30-40min. In the free area. For visiting the paid museums and for walking the site below, would recommend a more than an hour.
  • Awesome place to hang out for a few hours if you are into history. You get to walk for free around much of the ruins, and read up on the area's colourful history, as well as the market's. Would definitely reccomend if you are in the neighborhood anyway!
  • free AND so cool to see! also be sure to stop nearby at Hofmann Patisserie for the best croissants ever 😋
  • Two chapters of Catalonian history in one building. A great place to spend 30 minutes to an hour, and brimming with information. Plaques offered English translations. No entry fee.
