This work presents the study of a possible reconstruction for the Visigothic baptistery of Barcelona. A bibliographic research was performed in order to get in touch with the main historical, geometrical and structural characteristics of related buildings. The Episcopal city of Barcino (old name for the city of Barcelona) in the Visigothic time was studied, such as the remains of the baptistery. Several configurations were, then, imagined in cooperation with the archaeologists of the Museum of the city of Barcelona (MHC) for the possible structure. These solutions were, afterwards, tested by means of limit analysis and a final solution was proposed.
