The first thing I suggest visiting in Barcelona is the Museu d'História de Catalunya, or the Museum of the History of Catalonia, which you'll find in Plaça de Pau Vila in what were once the General Commerce Warehouses. The third and fourth floor tell the history of the Catalan people from prehistory to the present day. The medieval period shows you all about life in the monasteries, then you pass through the stages of Catalan expansion in Spain and the Mediterranean, ending with King Philip V's siege of Barcelona. The exhibition ends with the declaration of Catalonia's autonomy within Spain.
