Museum
“The cinema's museum is a funny place where you can see what the first film shows were like, participate in scientific, cultural and leisure activities and enjoy its ancient collections. Is housed in a building dating from the late nineteenth century, known as the Casa de les Aigües, because it formerly contained the head offices of the city's water company.”

Historic Site
“ Una de las cosas que no debes perderte es un paseo por su muralla con excelentes vistas de la ciudad y el Pirineo, se pueden hacer muy buenas fotos. Es una actividad gratuita. Informarse bien antes de ir ya que está mal señalizado y cuesta un poco encontrar los distintos tramos o accesos a la muralla. Mirar bien el mapa para organizar el recorrido, podéis ir subiendo y bajando de la muralla y combinar el itinerario con visitas a distintos puntos de interés. La muralla tiene 4 puntos de acceso: 1-Entrada desde el Jardín de la Francesa (Catedral). 2-Entrada desde los jardines de John Lennon (Paseo Arqueológico). 3-Entrada desde el Jardín de Infancia (a la riba del río Onyar). 4-Entrada desde la Plaça del General Marvà (cerca de la plaza Catalunya), recomiendo empezar por aquí. Llevar calzado cómodo, tipo zapatillas, y evitar las chanclas, para evitar resbalones con las piedras y las escaleras. La ampliación de las murallas romanas en época medieval permite hoy día pasear por el antiguo camino de ronda y recorrer los tramos de muralla carolingia más extensos de Europa (s. IX). Las diversas torres que la jalonan son auténticos miradores privilegiados sobre la ciudad y sus alrededores.”
