The old Barcino is still visible in the streets of the city, but it is also inside some buildings.

Street Avignon Ramblers Association Ethnography and Folklore (AEEF) is the only place in which you can enter the wall between the fortress built in the first century BC to delimit the city and built in the fourth century AD more robust defense. In the Middle Ages it was common to make openings in the wall and remove the debris that filled the space between the two walls to expand housing.
