  • Building the University Rovira and Virhili is located in the north-eastern part of the old town. In 1991, Parliament of Catalonia decided to establish on the basis of several educational institutions, the University, which was named after journalist and politician Antoni Rovira. To accommodate the University Rector's office building was renovated old municipal slaughterhouse, built in 1898-1902, respectively by a local architect in the modernist style. At the same time cleared and reconstructed square in front of the University, it's called the Placa de I'Escorxador. Now it is a large open space with a wide staircase. During our visit to the area was empty and deserted. About University buildings for signs of life too. If you pass in an arch on the left side of the building on Carrer de I'Escorxador, you will find yourself in a small narrow cul-de-sac, where is the Cappella San Maji. A very colorful place. In addition, the University Rector's office building (behind the ruins of the Roman walls) at Passeig de Torroja is output with the archaeological promenade.

  • Beautiful building in the heart of the old town of Tarragona. Not to visit the interior to be the Rector of the URV. A stroll through the outside is enough to enjoy its magnificence.

  • On the University uncovered by accident when went to the main Cathedral of Tarragona. The style of the buildings would be interested. Something like a vintage German mansion. On the square in front of the building there was nobody and the building itself looked deserted. After the trip began looking for materials about the unknown I building. It turned out that this is the main building of the University of Tarragona. but the more interesting thing was that the original building was built for a slaughterhouse. This temple of science. Hope students do not suffer greatly:)
