BACK  Tarragona

Established by Scipio in 218BC, Catalan Tarragona still displays a wealth of Roman antiquities. Most prominent among these are the Forum, the Amphitheatre and sections of the city walls. A fusion of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque, the city’s cathedral dominates Part Alta, the Old Town. Antique shops and art galleries invite your curiosity, while seafood menus and tapas bars around Plaça de la Font let you sample the region’s signature sauce: Romesco. Lovely sand beaches line the Costa Dorada on the fringes of town, while traditional fiestas fill the calendar, best known for their Castells, dancers who form human pyramids. If your visit doesn’t coincide with the Sant Magi festival in August, seek out their statue on the Rambla Nova.
