The Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat at the Plaza del Rei

Address: Plaza del Rei, s/n.

The History Museum of the City is located beside the Cathedral and has the most amazing building because in the basement one can see the Roman remains of the Roman city of Barcino. These archaeological remains cover an area of 4000 square meters and there are walkways that go to all the areas. One can see where wine was produced, a laundry where cloth was dyed, and where garum was made. Garum was the sauce made from fermented fish that the Romans loved so much. The period of the remains is from the first century before Christ to the 7th century. This museum is really amazing and makes history interesting. This museum probably has the biggest underground archaeological remains on show in all of Spain.

Closed on Mondays.
