Tour description

If you have enjoyed your visit to Tarragona during the day and you already know the Roman aspect of the city, the night will offer you revelations that can only be discovered in the light of the moon.

Discover the most mysterious face of Tarragona thanks to its stories and legends , walking through its streets full of charm and secrets . Many of them with a real base and others that are part of the imaginary of the city.

You are brave?

**Warning!** This tour is not suitable for very sensitive people or very young children.

We will start at the Portal de Sant Antoni and we will enter the Part Alta to see the Tower of the Souls, from the Plaça del Antic Escorxador ( Old Slaughterhouse ), where we will talk about the work, related to death, that the Tablero carried out in that tower .

At Portal del Carro , we will talk about the "road to hell" suffered by 150 women when they were transferred from the " Pilatos Prison" (Torre del Pretori) to "les Oblates" during Franco's repression.
We will also tell the story of our city's co-patron with the help of a mural: Sant Magí .

As we walk above what was the old city cemetery , we will be able to see the majestic bell tower of the Cathedral of Santa Tecla in all its splendor. We will also visit the entrance to one of the city's anti-aircraft shelters, located under the Biblical Museum .

The commerce of the Corderet House witnessed one of the most tragic and bloody events that shook this city: the French War .

Before the facade of the Cathedral of Santa Tecla we will talk about the martyrdom suffered by our patron saint.

Did you know that there was a giant in Tarragona? And that the rats have their own procession in the city?

When we get to the Old Court , we will explain how Tarragona was one of the last cities where an execution by vile garrote was carried out and it did not go too well.

We will visit the exterior of the beautiful Montoliu House and we will see the connection that this family had with spiritualism ; and then go to visit Carolina in Casa Castellarnau , where its sad history will be revealed .

Stories about witchcraft, exorcisms, supernatural beings and ghosts from specific streets will help us delve into the darkest and gloomiest side that this city has known.

Dare to discover it and let the magic of Tarragona intoxicate you!
