This is a small group of old Roman tombs in the middle of a square off La Rambla. The history is very interesting. I'm glad to see they built around the tombs and made them visible from street level (they are actually below street level)....More

A brilliant archaeological exhibit beautifully presented in situ at this plaza. Worth stopping 10 minutes to take in some of the history.
