Visit to Tarragona, an old Mediterranean city: light, mild climate and warm sea

Why Tarragona?

Tarragona is a city with thousands of years of history. Ancient Tarraco, founded by the Romans, was one of the most important cities in the Mediterranean and the capital of Hispania Citerior or Tarraconensis.

This impressive Roman legacy, a symbol of modern day Tarragona, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. But Tarragona is more than just Roman ruins: it also has a vibrant medieval history, art nouveau buildings, white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, a picturesque fishing and marina neighbourhood, protected forest and nature areas, traditions and popular culture, and, last but not least, the largest urban cave in Catalonia, which the most adventurous visitors to the city can descend into.

The light, the mild climate and the warm sea invite you to come enjoy the city’s splendid beaches.
