Local or Colony Forum
The Colonial Forum was the centre of social and political life in Tarraco. An early square has been documented in the city that dates to the era of the Roman Republic and that was presided over by a temple dedicated to the Capitoline Triad (Jupiter, Juno and Minerva). If the Apostle Paul visited the city of Tarraco, as legend tells us, this would be where he would have conducted his public missionary activities. A church dedicated to Saint Fructuosus was documented near this site in the medieval era and survived until the end of the 17th century. Pious tradition holds that the house of Saint Fructuosus was located on that spot.
