The city of Tarragona is located in the South of Europe and the Northeast of Spain just under 100 kilometers south of Barcelona. The province of Tarragona enjoys a privileged geographic situation on the shores of the Mediterranean and is favored by a moderate climate practically all year round. In the month of June, the average temperature is 23º C. As Lucius Annaeus Florus said, “The climate uniquely blends and blurs all the seasons so there appears to be perpetual springtime all year round.”

The complex of historic Roman monuments in Tarragona were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on November 30, 2000.

But Tarragona is much more than just Roman ruins, it also has a vibrant medieval history, art nouveau buildings, white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, a picturesque fishing and marina neighbourhood, protected forest and nature areas, traditions and popular culture.

The abundant Roman ruins of the city of Tarragona are supplemented by several major monuments from its mediaeval past with a rich mediaeval artistic heritage, and best epitomised by the city’s cathedral, which offers outstanding examples of art and architecture from the Middle Ages.
