What to see In Roman times, Tarragona was one of the most important cities in the Mediterranean. Indeed, the Roman amphitheatre, used for battles between gladiators and wild beasts, the theatre and the circus are the clearest example of the city’s Roman past. Make sure you visit the palaeo-Christian necropolis, one of the largest in the West. In addition to the monument from this period, there are others dating to the Middle Ages, such as the walls of the old town and the Cathedral of Santa María, as well as some with a more rational modernist design such as the Balcón del Mediterráneo vantage point with its spectacular views over the sea, and the tower and stand at Casa Ripoll. Beaches and nature areas You can take a dip in coves and golden sandy beaches with crystal clear waters along the 15 kilometres of coastline. Thanks to its year-round mild climate, you can enjoy a pleasant day of sunshine or some water sports anytime. Tarragona also has two protected nature spots – the River Gaià Estuary Nature Area and the beach of Tamarit, with over 80 different bird species. Gastronomy Being home to one of the most important ports in the Mediterranean Sea means visitors get to enjoy tasty seafood and oily fish.
