Over 2,000 years of history at your feet
Tarragona is a city with thousands of years of history. Ancient Tarraco, founded by the Romans, was one of the most important cities in the Mediterranean. This impressive Roman legacy, a symbol of modern day Tarragona, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
But Tarragona is more than just Roman ruins: it also has a vibrant medieval history, art nouveau buildings, white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, a picturesque fishing and marina neighbourhood, protected forest and nature areas, traditions and popular culture, and, last but not least, the largest urban cave in Catalonia, which the most adventurous visitors to the city can descend into.
