Tarragona: More than 2000 years of history.
In order that you may know more about Tarragona, we have prepared a small photo shoot about this beautiful city.
Tarragona has been, is and will be a city profoundly marked by the Roman Civilisation. Gnaeus Scipio created it in 218 B.C. and called it Tarraco. It was the first Roman military settlement outside the Italian peninsula and became the capital of all of Hispania Citerior, or Tarraconensis. The glory of those days can be seen today, thanks to the huge heritage that is preserved and makes. Thousands of visitors each year admire the amphitheatre, the forum and the city walls, some of the most recognizable symbols of Tarragona.
Tarragona's cultural wealth would not be the same without its Arab past (which spans four centuries, from the eighth to the 13th, as a city of the Al-Andalus Kingdom). Moreover, Tarragona also has a few signs of Jewish presence.
Near Tarragona are the Cistercian monastery of Poblet, Santes Creus and Vallbona of the Nuns.
