“Archaeology Site”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

I traveled to Spain to visit 3 cities. I booked my hotel and trains with Gate 1 Travel. I visited the cities on my own and was thrilled to visit the interesting La Almoina Archaeological Centre in Valencia. Don't miss it if you are interested in past time travel as you get to see the city below current Valencia: Roman times, Visigoth and Arab times. And in Barcelona the same type of site is to be visited at the Barcelona City History Museum. The site in Barcelona is more elaborate and extensive than that in Valencia. Try to see both. You will not be disappointed!

“A hidden piece of Valencia, tucked away”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

This museum is well worth the very small fee. We did not do the tour but still got a very good understanding of Valencia's history and how life was during its time as a Roman city. What a great find this must have been when it was unearthed, not that long ago! Outside you can sit and look down onto the ruins through a glass ceiling with water over the top of it - a great spot to rest for awhile

“very special, recomended”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

the display is very intesesting. You can see the old parts of the town, not just have an idea. The guided visit is well conducted. I strongly recomend the visit.

“Well hidden, but still worthwhile visiting”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

There are three reasons why you should visit this excavation site: 1. The scenography is very cleverly done with a series of glass bridges which allow you to walk over the remainders of the Roman city; 2. Smart graphics on screens make the urban setting come alive; 3. the site gets daylight through its glass roof which is actually a pond.

“Archaeological remains of Valencia”
Reviewed 22 October 2011

Hidden behind the cathedral. I believe you are supposed to go on a guided tour but there was no-one available who spoke English so I walked round on my own. There are very good information boards which show how the remains of buildings they have found would have looked when they were new. The remains are mainly Roman but some Arab buildings as well. Shows how the city has developed over the centuries.
