Spanish archaeologists discovered a medieval structure in a Barcelona building that later became a chocolate factory.

According to a translated press release, Barcelona Archaeology Service wrote, “Although the current estate dates from the 19th century, the parietal archeology work carried out so far has allowed the documentation of walls with arches and doors attributable to a large medieval house of the 14th century,”

“Work continues on the archaeological excavation of the subsoil and, at the same time, the study of the building’s facings is carried out with the aim of continuing to document the different periods and learn about the evolution of the building,” their press release continued.

The building, located in a medieval plaza, dates back to the 19th century but contains elements from a 14th-century medieval house.

It was converted into a hostel in the 15th century and underwent significant reforms in the 16th century.

In the 18th century, it was divided into three properties, and archaeologists found ceramic containers from that time.

The building housed a chocolate factory in the early 19th century, and excavators found lead plates used for labels.

Ongoing archaeological work aims to document the building’s evolution through different periods.
