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.
