Tour description

We will begin our route through the ancient Roman capital, meeting at the Balcón del Mediterraneo, the most important balcony for Tarragona residents with views of the MARENOSTRUM , which is located at the end of the Rambla Nova . When we have met each other and have introduced what the tour will consist of, we will leave aside one of the best views of the city and head towards the Amphitheater where we will explain one of the most important places in the city and formerly in the country, and immerse ourselves in the history of the ancient Romans. It is one of the best preserved in the entire WORLD!
Once we have put ourselves in the shoes of the ancient Romans, we will continue walking until we come across the doors to the Roman Circus where I will explain some of its curiosities.
To all this, at some point have you considered who was the first Roman emperor of the city of Tarraco? Well, you can discover it next to the Praetorian Tower where you can get an idea of ​​who he was and what intentions he had in this wonderful city.
Walking towards the Cathedral of Santa Tecla , we will come across the Plaza del Foro, where the old center of social and political life was located. When you arrive at the Cathedral of Santa Tecla , built on Roman and Arab remains, you will be able to observe its beauty and learn more about it.
We will end up ending the tour at the Walls , which are in front of the Rambla Vella , where I will explain what happened to part of them and how the Ancient Tarraconensis that today we know as TARRAGONA ended.
