The museum houses mostly Greek and Roman artifacts. Makes sense since the Greeks and Romans occupied Spain for quite a few years. The place is worth about 1 1/2 hour visit/tour.

This museum is a must for any fan of Archaeology. As you wander the lower halls, you will be taken from the origins of man through stone tool development and the later bronze and iron ages.

The collection is thematically organized within a broad, chronological framework covering prehistory, antiquity and the Middle ages. However, the installations theselves are thematically oriented, covering topics as diverse as death, social structure,...More

I know we're in Spain, but I imagine they would get a large number of non-Spanish speaking visitors. For the first part (prehistoric) they provided a large booklet in English, but this was difficult to follow because there was no numbering system or key. Only...More

fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
