Tarragona - Roman Tarraco - is by far the friendliest and most pleasant of the four Catalan provincial capitals and is a brilliant place for a relaxed and interesting wander. We'll take you to see the Roman, medieval and modernist sights - the 3rd century Roman walls, the 12th-14th century cathedral, various other medieval and later chapels, hospices, palaces, the Roman amphitheatre, the castle and the remains of the circus - but we'll also make sure you get to know the quiet little squares and (if you want) bars.
The principal optional extra for this walk is a trip out by public transport to see the massive Roman aqueduct (Pont del Diable/Pont del Moro/Puente del Diablo/Puente del Moro/Acueducto de les Ferreres). Ask for details.
