History

History of Barcelona
The first settlements in Barcelona date from the Neolithic period. The city itself was founded by the Romans who founded a colony called Barcino at the end of the 1st century BC. The colony had about a thousand inhabitants and was surrounded by a defensive wall, the remains of which can still be seen in the old town. For more than 200 years, Barcelona was under Muslim rule, and after later Christian campaigns, it became a county of the Carolingian Empire.
