"Columnes del Temple Romà" Roman Barcelona Tip by MM212
Roman Barcelona, Barcelona: 23 reviews and 54 photos
Secretly hidden within mediaeval buildings in Barri Gòtic are the astonishing ruins of the Roman Temple of Augustus. Four upright majestic Corinthian columns and the connecting architrave miraculously survived 2000 years within old buildings that were constructed over time. In the last century, they were exposed and made open to the public as seen today in celebration of the Roman heritage of Barcelona. One of the columns was actually moved to this site from another location, but the other three are in their original placement. The sight of the columns is incredible as one meanders through the alleys and enters what is seemingly another Gothic building from the outside, only to be faced with the towering ancient columns. This is one of my favourite spots in Barcelona.
