Archeological museum that was both great value and stunning location. We had the benefit of being the only ones there. This made it even more special. Addd bonus was that it gives other museums a 50pc discount. interesting perspective and beautiful environment on outskirts.

This museum occupies an amazing space in a former romanesque church and cloister: it is stunning architecture. The museum is moderately interesting but the space alone is well worth the small entrance fee. Just go.

I love these museums; they are never crowded, and they illustrate early human history using artifacts found in the neighborhood. The permanent displays upstairs in this place are really well-thought out and illustrative. The main area, however, is a mishmash of Roman tombstones, a rose...More

The museum takes the visitor on a journey through pre-history to the medieval using artifacts from many locations in Catalonia. There are welcome multilingual descriptions of the visits. The narrative is clear but one is not overwhelmed by the number of exhibits displayed. The building...More
