Tarragona

The Roman amphitheater of Tarraco, located alongside the Mediterranean Sea, is one of the best preserved in the world. This second-century building is part of the magnificent archaeological heritage of the city, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which includes elements such as the great wall which traced the perimeter of the imperial city. Its length was about 3,500 meters, of which 1,100 are still preserved, surrounding the old quarter. The remarkable ruins of the Roman circus are among the best preserved in Europe. The heritage site, along with the circus and praetorium, includes the aqueduct of Las Ferreres (popularly known as the Devil's Bridge).

From Monastery to Monastery

In addition to this imperial legacy, on the Costa Daurada you can experience medieval life along the Cistercian Route, a journey visiting three monasteries of the Order of Cistercians, which once served as important cultural centers. These are the Royal Abbey of Santa Maria de Poblet, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the Monastery of Santa Maria de Vallbona and the Royal Monastery of Santa Maria de Santes Creus.
