Local attractions

A city full of surprises with thousands of years of civilization just waiting to be discovered. Dine under the vaults of the Roman circus, lose yourself in the charming, narrow alleys of the historic quarter, where the essence of the medieval city remains untouched by time, or enjoy a glass of local vermouth surrounded by over 2,000 years of history. This is the true World Heritage of Tarragona! It is a heritage made up of monuments that transcend time, of spots that take us back to Roman, medieval, modern and modernist eras; but it is also a heritage made of people, of human stories and histories, of small moments, of emotions and feelings…

Roman routeThe purpose of the Roman Route is to introduce visitors to the history of Tarragona by means of the main monuments that survive from that era, when the city was at the peak of its splendour.
