So, beneath Plaza del Rei square, Calle Comtes street, Plaza de Sant Lu square, the Marès Museum and part of the Gothic cathedral, you can visit archaeological sites with important remains that show the origins of the city known as Colonia Iulia Augusta Faventia Paterna Barcino, founded by the Romans 2,000 years ago.
