Casa Canals, located between Passeig de Sant Antoni, Carrer Granada and Plaça de Sant Antoni, is one of the few noble homes in Tarragona to have been fully preserved to this day. It is a stately, modern-era home, done in the same style as Casa Castellarnau. However, in this case the structure was designed to take advantage of a Roman wall dating back to the late 2nd century B.C., and vestiges of a 14th-century home can still be seen on the first floor. The building moreover contains a Spanish Civil War-era shelter. Visitors can tour the main floor, garden and terrace, which overlooks the walls and offers spectacular views. The second floor has been fitted out to serve as a conference room, while the upper floors are used to host diverse temporary exhibits.
