The impressive Roman remains of Tarragona, the old capital of the Roman province of Hispania Tarraconensis, led to it being declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Located along the Mediterranean coastline, Tarragona has a well-preserved Roman heritage, including a Roman circus and an amphitheater, which overlooks the city’s golden sand beaches.
The city is also well known for its castells, a very typical Catalan tradition. These are human towers, up to 9 or 10 people high, in which strong young people climb on top of each other until the youngest children reach the top and wave their hand. There are many competitions around the area during the season. Displays of these castells often form part of the patron saint festivals of the towns in the area. Tarragona is located about 100 km south of Barcelona. A historic walking tour within the Roman walls would take between from 1 and 2.5 hours. We also suggest stopping on the way to visit the most impressive Roman aqueduct in Catalonia, still standing and in good shape after more than 2000 years.
