Roman Tarragona Historical Tour with a Local Guide


Enjoy our exclusive Historical Tour of Tarragona with a Local Guide and discover the hidden gems and ancient ruins of this historical city. We will visit the remains of the Roman Empire in Spain, which were declared a World Heritage Site in the year 2000. And we will visit the city highlights such as La Rambla and the Old Town.

In this historical tour, we will uncover the ancient history of the city that stretches as far back as the fifth century BC. We will visit the Walls of Tarragona, the oldest Roman monument in the Iberian Peninsula of those that are preserved outside of Italy. During the Archaeological Walk, the Archbishop’s Tower stands out, with notable medieval reforms, and the Minerva Tower, a Roman sculpture with the oldest inscription on the Iberian Peninsula.

Afterwards, we will stroll through the old city and visit the Roman Circus, a building where the horse and chariot races were located between the Via Augusta and the Provincial Forum. We will discover the central area of the Circus, in which there are remains of walls, stands, circus stones and other constructions that were built later. We will also visit the Roman Praetorian Tower, which allowed the passage from the lower city to the Provincial Forum, which was connected by underground corridors. Then, we will go up to the viewpoint where we will enjoy unique views.

Our historical accessible tour will continue visiting the Roman Amphitheater that completes the trilogy of Roman show buildings in Tarraco. Inside the amphitheater, gladiator fights with beasts were held, as well as public executions. To end our exclusive Historical Tour of Tarragona with a Local Guide, we will enjoy a walk through La Rambla Nova.
