A walk through Roman Barcelona
A tour of Roman Barcelona is a box of surprises containing archaeological remains dating from the time the city was established. Barcino, the Roman city founded in the 1st century BC, has left us a valuable legacy, which can be found in the Gothic Quarter, the site of the early walled city.
A visit to medieval Barcelona is one of the most fascinating city itineraries
The power wielded by the Crown of Catalonia and Aragon over the Mediterranean during the Middle Ages has left a valuable legacy of palazzos, churches and civic buildings. Most of them can be found in the old town, Ciutat Vella.
Pailebot Santa Eulàlia
On Barcelona's Moll de la Fusta quay, a few metres away from the Museu Marítim
The Santa Eulàlia, is a wonderful example of a historic three-masted vessel, which has been restored to the delight of anyone wishing to learn a little bit more about our country's seafaring past.
The Parc de la Ciutadella, Barcelona's urban "green lung", is no ordinary park
In 1869, the demolition of the military citadel, built a century earlier by Philip V, was highly significant for a boom Barcelona with its sights firmly set on the 1888 Universal Exhibition. The result was a park which the architect Josep Fontseré adapted to the needs of the world fair.
Parlament de Catalunya
We invite you to visit the headquarters of one of the oldest parliaments in the world, Parliament of Catalonia, and know their roles
Following Barcelona's protracted resistance to the siege by Franco-Spanish troops, which was finally crushed on September 11th, 1714, the conquering Philip V felt the need to stamp his authority on Barcelona and thereby subject the whole of Catalonia. Today's Parliament Palace is the former arsenal of the fort he had built in order to achieve that aim.
Waterfall and lake
One of the many pleasures to be enjoyed in the Parc de la Ciutadella is a row around the boating lake in front of the monumental waterfall with its statue of Venus in the centre.
