If you thought time travel was something you'd only see in a sci-fi film featuring Michael J. Fox, then it's time to bust that myth. Travel to Tarragona and be transported back in time for a few days to Ancient Rome or the Middle Ages. Living history.
Rambla Nova is the city's main avenue. Spanning more than 1 km and home to countless terraces, sculptures and shops, it leads to one of the most emblematic points in Tarragona: the Balcó del Mediterrani viewpoint. Another symbol of the city that you simply cannot miss is the Amphitheatre, the scene of fierce, gladiator battles in Roman times. Save time to tour the old quarter or Part Alta, with spots like Placa del Rei or Tarragona Cathedral absolutely must-sees.
