We will begin our route on the street "Portaferrissa" at which entrance a mosaic reminds us that one of the entrances of the medieval wall of Barcelona was located here. We'll cross the street full of shops and bars to reach the square Nova where the famous Market of Santa Lucia is situated.
We'll continue down the street Palla to appreciate the ruins of the old Roman wall. We'll go at the Ferran Street and from there we'll go to the neuralgic city center, where the Ayuntamiento and the Palace of the Generalitat are situated. The building of the local government has varied architectural styles because they have been buying the surrounding buildings in order to increase their housing accommodation. However, they easily differ from each other by the statue of Sant Jordi, which crowns the Palau de la Generalitat.
From here we'll ascend slightly the Paradise Street where we will see a millstone embedded in the ground from where the Romans based the city, el Monte Taber. Trace of this four columns of the ancient Roman Temple of Augustus.
We'll continue the walk down the street Llibreteria, then the Veguer street to the Plaza del Rei. A really lovely square where the music of the artists takes us back to the past. On the steps of this peaceful place, Ferdinand II the Catholic, on his way out of the chapel of St. Agatha, has been the victim of an attack which he survived without being hurt. We'll continue along the street Pietat bordering the dome of the cathedral, the Bisbe Street and we'll end at the Avenida de la Catedral.
