Stop At: El Born / La Ribera, El Born / La Ribera, Barcelona, Catalonia
The archaeological remains that have been excavated and which can currently be seen inside the old El Born market show us the history of Barcelona from the Roman period up to the start of the 18th century, where life in this part of the city was abruptly interrupted with the outbreak of the War of the Spanish Succession.
Not all the remains are of the same importance or have been conserved to the same extent. We need to bear in mind that the relics conserved prior to the 13th century were not part of Barcelona’s urban centre, even though they were linked to it. By contrast, from the 13th century on, the structures already fully belonged to the city, as a result of its growth.
