Dear Commons Community,
This is our last full day in Barcelona. In the morning and early afternoon, we visited the Museu d’Història de Barcelona (MUHBA), the City’s history museum. Most impressive was the preservation of ruins that date back to the 1st century B.C. and are completely underground. A well-designed scaffold provides a path to the various exhibits. (Each stop had English translations.) The remains of a winery, laundry room, fish preparation workshop, bishop’s residence, and a Roman home were well explained with drawings of the actual ruin and what it possibly looked like in its time.
Above the ruins at street level were the count’s palace from the 14th and 15th centuries.
A fine history lesson.
In the afternoon, we did shopping.
