“In street photography taken while walking around the Barri Gotic, Barcelona’s Old Town, I captured this ancient cistern, used to supply water to the earliest settlers. The mosaic on the walls of the cistern is topical. Designed in blue, It artfully shows women carrying pails of water.”

Barcelona’s history began where the Barri Gòtic is today, in between the Rambla in the west and Via Leietana in the east. The Romans founded a settlement called “Colonia Faventia Julia Augusta Pia Paterna Barcino” or short “Barcino” on the hill Mons Taber about 133 before Christ. Soon a city wall was built – 8 metres thick and up to 18 metres high, with 78 fortified towers. By the standards of that time the 1270 metres long wall was an imposing structure. — Barcelona.de
