Sightseeing in Tarragona - what to see. Complete travel guide

This picturesque Spanish town is situated on the Mediterranean coast. Rambla Vella Street is considered the central part of Tarragona. This street conventionally divides the town into two parts. The northern part of the town is the location of old quarters. Here you will see buildings that stand here from the reign of the Roman Empire. The old town is surrounded by high fortifying wall, which is also one of the main attractions. The southern part of Tarragona is a new one. Here are located numerous modern business centers, restaurants and hotels.
Start your introduction with this town from visiting the so-called Mediterranean balcony. This is a spacious observation deck, which is located on a hill. The deck features breathtaking views of the coast. From here you can see the ruins of an ancient amphitheater, which is also known as the main attraction of the Old Town. This arena was built for 12 000 spectators, and so here often took place numerous performances and gladiator fights. Near the amphitheater is located the church of Santa Maria del Miracle, the construction of which took place in the 12th century. This is a beautiful Gothic building, which is reminiscent of the tragic events of the past. The church was built in the memory of first Christians of Tarragona, who had been executed on the stage of the amphitheater.
Several attractions, which are left from the Roman era, can be found in Ray Square. The Palace of the Roman governor and the local Circus are certainly very popular, but Roman Museum is still the most visited one. The museum’s basement leads to the system of underground passages, which have been discovered by archaeologists. This is a true underground maze with many intricate passages and secret rooms. Visitors can learn more about the archaeological finds of this place in National Archaeological Museum of Tarragona. Copyright
