The best of Tarragona
Building built in the second century and located in front of the blue Mediterranean sea. Inside it were celebrated gladiator fights with wild beasts and also public executions, this had capacity for about 14,000 spectators.
It's no waste to sit on the stone seats, a stone with a long history, looking at the sand and imagining the barbarities of that time while the gentle sea breeze caresses your thoughts.
Aqueduct of Les Ferreres
Roman construction from the 1st century BC, also known as the Devil's Bridge. This aqueduct was in charge of supplying water from the Francolí River to the city, Tarragona. It has been designated Patrimony of the Humanity by the Unesco, for being one of the monuments of the Roman epoch that are conserved in an extraordinary good state.
Cathedral Basilica of Tarra
Considered the greatest exponent of medieval style, an impressive building both on the outside and inside.
Modernist work in which you will feel hypnotized to support you. It would be unforgivable to visit Tarragona and not look out over the Mediterranean Sea, while the sun's rays reflect the twisted profile of this handrail on the ground.
