Museu d’Història de Barcelona (MUHBA) Plaça del Rei

One of 10 sites under the MUHBA banner, arguably the Plaça del Rei is the star. What you don’t tend to realise as you’re admiring the historic architecture in Barcelona’s city centre  is that there’s a whole Roman walled settlement under your feet. Descend in the lift at MUHBA and go back a couple of centuries to see nearly an acre of it, from temples to laundries, and wineries, the tour imparts an amazing sense of what life was like in this ancient settlement.
