Museu d’Història de Catalunya stop
If you want to learn about the evolution of Catalan culture over its centuries of history, visit the Palau de Mar, a 19th-century port building that is home to the History Museum of Catalonia.
Catalonia, from prehistory to the present day
The Museu d’Història de Catalunya stop of the Red Route of Barcelona Bus Turístic is very close to the Palau de Mar building, a fine example of 19th-century port architecture and Barcelona’s industrial heritage and home to the History Museum of Catalonia, which shows you the culture of the region from its prehistoric origins.
At this stop, if you take a stroll to the bottom part of the Gothic Quarter, you will discover the baroque Basilíca de la Mare de Déu de la Mercè (Basilica of the Virgin of Mercy), built over another church from the medieval period and dedicated to the patron saint of Barcelona.
