Tarragona travels in time up until a period of great splendour for the city: the Roman times. During these international symposiums to raise awareness of ancient Roman history, the visitor lives the Roman Tarraco through historic performances such as gladiator fights, Roman theatre, music and dance and historical re-enactments of life in Roman times.All of this within an incomparable setting: the monumental sites declared World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.
Tarraco a Taula, a gastronomic festival of ancient recipes of the Roman cuisine, complements the historical re-enactments.
The twenty-third edition of the Tarraco Viva Festival is back to its springtime schedule this year, keeping some of the activities online but resuming enclosed, open-air venues for others, with controlled access and all the necessary safety measures. As in other years, the event aims to shine a light on the past to help us understand the present, and this year the main theme will be the death of Julius Caesar and the end of the Roman Republic.
