Arkeo Tour was born from an idea of a group of youngs from Andalusia and Madrid who loved its History, culture and heritage. Our team is made up of great professionals with extensive experience in managing of tourist groups and cultural visits in different parts of Spain. Most of us have trained on the street, collaborating in different archaeological sites, art galleries and museums. We consider that our land has great heritage and cultural potential that must be valued for both residents and tourists. We do not believe that transmitting our history is bored. We want you to enjoy it. May you live the experience. And that you impregnate yourself with the vestiges of our past. Join this adventure with us!

Tour description

Discover the magnificent city of Tarragona with this free tour that will be a true journey through time.

Visit the archaeological remains that are still preserved in Tarraco and find out why they were declared a World Heritage Site !

We will begin the visit by seeing the remains of the ancient Roman wall and entering the famous Portal del Roser.

Did you know that the historic center of Tarragona sits on the acropolis of the classical city? The Cathedral of Santa Tecla can be located on a time to Augustus. It is a true example of Catalan Gothic!

During our tour we will be able to notice the remains of the provincial forum and the circus from Roman times , but also the temples, hospitals and houses of medieval origin.

We know little about the Muslim presence in the city, but remains of the Jewish quarter are preserved.

After walking next to the Torre del Praetorio we will leave the walled enclosure and arrive at the Mediterranean Balcony . A place to take some beautiful photos by the sea!

We will finish the route visiting the Roman amphitheatre, where gladiator fights and public executions were held.

Deni es una guía maravillosa, íbamos con un perrito en el tour y acomodó las charlas para que pudiésemos escucharlas casi todas, (menos una de interior que era imposible) Es muy simpática y siempre está dispuesta a ayudarte en lo que necesites, a parte de hacer genial su labor de guía
