  • The Museum of the Gothic quarter focuses on the underground. You can find a little bit of history that makes this city is, collect the Temperance of its people and the deep gaze with an air of mystery that over the years has inspired some of the best pens in the world to write great works of literature.

  • The museum is very good. It includes a chance to see the beautiful enormous room where it is said Cristoforo Colombo was received (Saló del Tinell): in any case, a feat of architecture for the time. 
  • Thr museum is amazing. An audioguide walks you through centuries of ruins from Roman through medieval times underneath the city and finishes with a quick exhibit on more recent history. We easily spent 2 hours exploring the massive expanse of ruins, which provided concrete visuals related to food and wine preparation and other elements of daily life as well as remains of an early religious complex.
  • The museum has a unique presentation, and the journey through the archeological remains of the roman settlement Barcana is a haunting experience. A must see for students of ancient/medieval history.
  • We saw this lovely old building from the open top bus so we had to get off and walk round it and the lovely area it is set in! It is only one of a few old buildings left in the area which has been tastefully renovated in a lovely area by the port! There are a variety of stalls in the near vicinity too! Didn't have time to go inside though as there is so much to do and see in this amazing city in only a few days!
  • Very informative and interesting telling of Barcelona history, including the amazing underground Roman ruins. Much bigger than you expect!
  • A very complete museum about the history of the city. It is quite in depth and you can spend a whole morning inside it! Nice Roman runes and more! A must see for those of you who are interested in history!
