Bibendum
The Roman and visigothic town found beneath the Clariana-Padellàs house and the Plaza del Rei, gave rise to Barcelona. There are not many towns in the world in which you can walk underground through Roman streets. See the remains of a seaside building with its swimming pool. Note also the many amphoras and the drainage systems discovered. Underground, in the Roman town, you make your way through two halls, which are part of the old Counts' Palace. On display inside you can see all the objects that were found when the Roman walls were removed. Many sculptures from the 1-4C. were found, the most significant being the Busts of Agrippine, the empress Faustine and her father, Anthony the Pious. In the mezzanine of the Padellàs house there are still memories retained of the Jews and Arabs of medieval Barcelona, whilst on the Ground-floor, coins and everyday objects recall the growth of businesses and the creation of the first industry.
