Explore Tarragona on this guided tour. It begins with a drive through the city – your guide will point out the sights as you drive by, before you get up close and personal with them on the walking tour. Your starting point will be the Old Town of Tarragona – it’s famous for its Medieval architecture and for playing host to one of the most important sites for Roman ruins in Spain. You’ll discover landmarks like the Portal del Roser – a gate set into the huge walls that frame the old town. The Tarragona Cathedral is the next stopping point – its architecture is a blend of Gothic and Romanesque style. This 13th-century monument provides a historical contrast to the next place on the tour, which takes you even further back in time to the Roman Circus. Here you’ll find an ancient amphitheatre that dates back to the second century. It used to host horse and chariot races which drew in thousands of spectators. Once you’ve finished taking in the views of the amphitheatre, you’ll head up to the Mediterranean Balcony, a viewpoint that looks out over the city and across the sea. It’s an ideal place to capture pictures – no filter necessary.
The cathedral and Roman Circus can only be visited from the outside.
