I have never seen such sheer volume of art objects of one type lined up row after row for comparison and contrast. I am of two minds about this. As a lover of Medieval and Renaissance art, the museum offered a chance for me to...More

As other reviewers have said, this museum is a quiet little gem. Filled with statuary from Roman and medieval times, loads of religious icons and then, on the second floor, more collections than I have ever seen in my life. Old photographs, old stamps, eyeglasses,...More

Is a huge collection of anything you can think about, that's not only a good thing but also a problem. It gets boring after a while, although the last rooms are the better one.

We enjoyed the walk their with different collections as for Sunday afternoon it's free entry. All the collections blew out mind off and we enjoyed no crash, no rush and not many people. Worth a visit.

What a delight this museum is! Tucked away beside the old cathedral, it's very easy to miss. As you enter, it's a bit 'museum-y' with a series of Roman artefacts followed by medaeival stuff as you venture ever upward. Your real treat however is yet...More

This museum is a must-see if you are interested in medieval art - it is located in an old Royal Palace, next to the cathedral. There are beautiful sculptures and also a collector's cabinet.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

€4.20 for adults. It doesn't vary on Saturday. If you have a Barcelona card it gives you entry with no additional cost.
