At the Museu d'Arqueologia you can take a tour through the history of Girona up to the Middle Ages, through its archaeological remains.
The Girona Archaeology Museum (Museu d'Arqueologia de Girona or MAC), located in the Monestir de Sant Pere Galligants, houses archaeological material found during various digs around Girona, material whose dates range from prehistory to the Middle Ages: remains from Empúries, headstones and sculptures from the Roman settlement of Gerunda and medieval inscriptions, to name but a few. The building itself is also well worth a visit: the Sant Pere Galligants Monastery is one of the most notable examples of Catalan Romanesque architecture from the 12th century. Until 1975, when Girona's Museu d'Art was created, the MAC also hosted art collections in its role as the Belles Arts Museum.
