Legend has it that Jupiter left his wife, the mortal Tiria, when he fell in love with the city of Tarragona, which entranced him. History has it that in 281 B.C. the Romans established a strategic settlement on the site, which eventually became the capital of Hispania Citerior. An extremely rich monumental heritage remains from those times of splendour: you can still admire remains including the Wall which skirts the upper city, the Forum, the Amphitheatre, the Aqueduct, the Scipios’ Tower and Berà’s Arch. The ensemble was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The Ramblas, the old quarter of the city and the fantastic Mediterranean Balcony make Tarragona one of the most pleasant cities on Spain’s Mediterranean coast.
