Tarragona celebrates Tarraco’s 23 years as a World Heritage Site

30 November and 3 December

Celebration of the 23rd anniversary of the declaration of the Tarraco Archaeological Ensemble as a World Heritage Site by Unesco

Welcome to the Open Doors days in Tarragona!: discover places and sites of the Archaeological Ensemble of Tarraco

Tarraco’s 23 years as a World Heritage Site

The Archaeological Ensemble of Tarraco comprises 14 sites spread across four municipalities. In Tarragona itself you will find the Roman Walls, the Temple of Imperial Worship, the Provincial Forum square, the Roman Circus, the Colonial Forum, the Roman Theatre, the Roman Amphitheatre with the Visigoth basilica and Romanesque church of Santa Maria del Miracle, the Early Christian Necropolis, the Les Ferreres Aqueduct, the Scipion Tower, and the Mèdol Quarry. In the municipality of Constanti you’ll find the monumental complex of Centcelles; in the town of Altafulla, the Roman Villa of Els Munts; and in Roda de Berà you’ll find the Bera Arch.

All these sites are characteristic of a provincial capital such as Tarraco, which was an exceptionally important city in terms of the development of urban planning and the aesthetics of Roman cities, serving as a model for other cities created in the Roman Empire.
