  • Last Monday walked over here, but it was closed then. Yesterday we walked over again and it was open. In This building there are archaeological loads to see. In the past, this imposing building was a market hall. Very nice.

  • I must say that for reasons of time I saw the old Born Market only from outside, but it is still interesting to see for its structure of the late nineteenth century. It is also appreciable how a structure built for other purposes (covered market) has been reinvented as a cultural center. Beautiful from the outside, next time we will be in Barcelona I hope from within too.

  • I was stunned to find such a well preserved piece of Barcelona's history, knowing nothing about El Born beforehand. This is yet another place well worth visiting if you can fit it in for the sheer amount of information in there about life in Barcelona for as far back as the 18th Century. There's also a great gift shop and bar that offers a locally founded beer 'Moritz' that is worth a try.
  • The old Roman city with a multitude of expansions made to the late 1700's. Fantastic attached side museums of all the discovered artifacts and descriptions of daily life in the various timer periods. The free part is the open site with overlooking terraces. There are detailed signs everywhere depicting different buildings below and their functions. From standard Roman homes to a Brandy Destillerie in the 1700s. One can easily spend 30-40min. In the free area. For visiting the paid museums and for walking the site below, would recommend a more than an hour.
