    La Cantera of El Mèdol is the most important stone quarry used by the Romans to build the buildings of Tarraco. The Quarry has vertical walls with a column left to "witness" during excavation as used. The golden-yellow stone was also used in medieval times for buildings like the Cathedral. Interesting if you are interested in history.

    Although I understand that because of people incivica go access to dogs to many sites, I do not understand that a space like a quarry not permitted. So that from the outside you can see quite a few things and information. Pity will not be able to access with dog
