Barcelona has an exciting history
Barcelona has more than 2000 years of history. The city was founded around the year 15 BC by the Romans with the name Barcino. Still several remains are left from that period, among them the Roman temple, part of the temple, the walls and the aqueduct.

In the 13th Century a new glorious period began for Barcelona that would last to the end of the 15th Century. From this period we can see several interesting churches (among them Santa María del Mar, The Cathedral and Santa María del Pi), the shipyard (Drassanes) and the city’s old hospital (The National Library). But you will also be able to see modern buildings on the way that tell about the glorious past of Barcelona, especially in the so called Jewish Quarter.
