201901251725trip to Tarragona is unmissable
If Roman ruins are your thing then a day trip to Tarragona is unmissable. A simply fantastic amphitheatre still stands from nearly two millennia ago, overlooking the Mediterranean sea, whilst Roman walls and porticoes can also be admired ¨C as can a magnificent aqueduct if you¡¯re prepared to take a 4km jaunt out of town. It¡¯s not just relics from the time of Caesar and chums though, and Tarragona has a wonderful Gothic cathedral and a picturesque Old Town as well. The one minus point is that, in a catastrophic bit of town planning, the rail tracks cut off the city beach meaning you have to hot foot it around the station to get some sand. In other words go for the history/culture and not the sunbathing.
