Description

Ninety five tombs from the second and third centuries A.D

Part of a necropolis from the second and third centuries A.D. lie in Vila de Madrid square. The 95 graves lie in between flower-beds on both sides of one of the minor roads that leads into the Roman city of Barcino (Barcelona). Most of the tombs are 'cupae', a simple funeral monument. The necropolis lies outside the Roman wall, as the law prohibited burials within the city.
