Best for History - Expert review of Museu d’Història de Barcelona
The handsome Casa Padellàs, which was moved here stone by stone from a hundred yards away to make way for the Via Laietana, now forms the centre of the city’s history museum. The Plaça del Rei complex also incorporates the Rei Martí watchtower (currently closed to the public), the chapel of Saint Agatha and the grand Saló del Tinell, where the Catholic Kings were said to have received Columbus when he returned from the Americas.
The real highlight, though, are the extensive Roman remains that run from below the museum all the way to the cathedral. You can make out the foundations of streets, houses and traces of the various industries housed here.
7 euros; 5 euros reductions.
