The Top 5 essential visits in Tarragona

1. Roman Tarraco. The amphitheatre, praetorium, circus, city walls, provincial forum, local forum, aqueduct… All of these are Roman monuments were left as the heritage of this ancient civilisation in the capital of Hispania Citerior.

2. Mediterranean Balcony. At the end of Rambla Nova and 130 ft. above the sea, enjoy the best view of Mare Nostrum, the port and the Roman amphitheatre. When locals visit the balcony they say they are going to “touch steel”, since touching the rail is believed to bring you good luck.

3. Cathedral and Diocesan Museum. The construction of the cathedral, dedicated to St. Tecla, began in the Eleventh century although it lasted for many centuries, resulting in a combination of architectonic styles.

4. El Serrallo. Traditional fishing district with narrow streets and mid-Nineteenth century buildings which preserve the image of typical seafront neighbourhoods. With plenty of character and soul, the district also offers the best and freshest fish and seafood restaurants.

5. Port Aventura World. A whole world of fun located on the outskirts of Tarragona. Two theme parks for all ages and the new Ferrari Land for motor racing lovers.

Culture

Tarragona isn’t just a historical city. Today, it is still very much alive remembering its past by organising different festivals dedicated to telling its history.

It pays tribute to its roots with Tarraco Viva, an international festival which commemorates the everyday and military life of Roman times: the legions, the theatre, the homes, the cuisine, the engineering… By discovering the past, we can understand the present a lot better.

The city is also known for its castells or human towers, a stunning event which originated in the area, also declared Intangible Heritage by UNESCO.

Other traditional festivals of note are Sant Jordi in April, the International Fireworks Competition in July, Sant Magí in August and the local city festival of Santa Tecla in September.
