Paleochristian Museum and Necropolis (MNAT)
Around the Tarraco exit roads towards the south (via Augusta) and the west (via De Italia in Hispanias)an extensive funerary area was developed during the Late-Roman period. Very likely around the remains of Bishop Fructuosus and his deacons Augurius and Eulogius, burnt in the amphitheatre arena in 259 A.D. The construction of a basilica to commemorate the martyrs, at the start of the V century A.D., marks the period of the cemetery’s maximum splendour.
The remains, in situ, of a part of this necropolis and its Visitor Centre bring us closer to the World of death in Roman times.
