Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat
The must-see Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat in Barcelona traces the city's fascinating history from the earliest settlements to the present day, with a special emphasis on its Roman history. The main draw of the museum is the incredible underground ruins of the Barcino, an ancient Roman city. Visitors can explore the 4,000 square meters of ruins on metal walkways, and headsets are available to visitors in English. Along with ruins of houses and walls, the underground section of the Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat includes fascinating glimpses into ancient life with its preserved wine-making and laundry facilities.
- Visit the upstairs portion of the Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat, the Palau Reial Major, where guests will find fascinating displays depicting Barcelona during the Middle Ages.
- Explore the beautiful Chapel of Santa Agata; built in 1302, the nave of the chapel features an impressive wooden ceiling.
- Marvel at the stunning architecture of the Barcelona's Salo del Tinell hall, which features spectacular arches and buttresses and is said to be the place where Christopher Columbus announced his discovery of America to Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand.
The Museu d'Historia de la Ciutat is conveniently located in central Barcelona near the Jaume I Yellow Line metro station. For those not wishing to take the subway, the Museu d'Historia may also be reached by taxi or bus. Taxis are available throughout the city and are metered; most will accept major credit cards. Three-wheeled cycle taxis also roam the city and can transport up to two passengers. Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona buses will travel to most major locations within the city, and a network of minibuses operates after hours.
