Historic City Centre

Enclosed by Roman walls, the historic medieval centre captivates visitors with its surrounding streets and Gothic cathedral.

Furthermore, you can visit several monuments featuring various architectural styles, such as the former Hospital de Santa Tecla, the Jewish district, Casa Canals, Casa Castellarnau or the modernist Casa Ripoll.

Amphitheatre

This large open-air museum is part of the city's archaeological complex and has been designated World Heritage by UNESCO.

The amphitheatre of ancient Tarraco is unique due to its location on the shores of the Mediterranean. The amphitheatre features the remains of the floor plan of a Visigothic basilica at its centre.

Rambla Nova

Rambla Nova is the city's main central avenue. It runs through the modern city of Tarragona from the south-east to the north-east, starting at the Imperial Tarraco square all the way to the Balcony of the Mediterranean.

Several modernist buildings on the Rambla are worth a visit, such as Casa Salas or the Neoclassical Edifici de l'Enher. A street market is held every Tuesday and Thursday along the Rambla.
