From COOLTUR Cultural Tourism we present our tour of the Roman Barcelona
The Roman Empire, after the Cantabrian Wars (1st century BC), rearranged the territories of Hispania. In the case of Catalonia, he built different colonies in order to have greater control of the territory. Barcino (today’s Barcelona), was one of these new colonies. This colony was built on Mount Taber, a small elevation now engulfed by the city.
Barcelona has been undergoing different transformations since its foundation. It has grown in number of inhabitants, and in urban area. However, we can still see a large number of remains of the original city. It is for this reason that we propose you the tour of Roman Barcelona. Through this tour, you can discover the Roman remains that are still preserved in Barcelona.
This is a tour of about 3 km. We believe that this urban tour can be done with the whole family. It is also suitable for people with reduced mobility. In addition, it can also be done with pets and / or by bicycle. At the same time that you will discover the preserved Roman remains, you will also enjoy the historical centre of Barcelona.
