There can be no more thrilling and evocative time of year in Tarragona than the festivity to end all festivities: the celebration of its patron saint, Santa Tecla.
After a year of restrictions imposed by the pandemic, between 15 and 24 September, Santa Tecla will resume the most traditional part of its festivities with the Seguici Popular (Popular Retinue), which this year will perform in full.
A city full of surprises with thousands of years of civilization just waiting to be discovered. Dine under the vaults of the Roman circus, lose yourself in the charming, narrow alleys of the historic quarter, where the essence of the medieval city remains untouched by time, or enjoy a glass of local vermouth surrounded by over 2,000 years of history. This is the true World Heritage of Tarragona! It is a heritage made up of monuments that transcend time, of spots that take us back to Roman, medieval, modern and modernist eras.
