Tarragona "The imperial Tarraco"

Population 143,000, 14 kilometres of coastline.
Declared “Heritage of Humanity “ in 2000 and has a first-class artistic ‘ensemble’.The festival of the historic reconstruction ‘Tarraco Viva’ allows you to relive this era.

The competition is one of the numerous rendez-vous which regularly draws thousands of people – with the procession of Santo Enterro, the feasts of Santa Tecla and the competition of Castillos. Tarragona faces its future with an optimism and has important challenges: the restructuring of its seafront and its candidature for becoming Cultural European Capital in 2016 and for hosting the Mediterranean Games in 2017.
