Construction on Catedral Basilica Metropolitana Primada de Tarragona began in 1171, and over the centuries it developed into a massive and massively impressive piece of architecture. The best way to see it is on the full tour, which also takes you up the bell tower for views over the city, then to the remains of the Roman wall that once stood here and into the Diocesan museum. Highlights include the facade, which is adorned with carvings of saints and prophets, the triple arcade and series of arches that border the peaceful, park-like cloister, and the medieval Christian art and Moorish artifacts in the museum. The cathedral offers audio guides to rent for your visit.

  • a marvel of architecture which is full of art treasures, of small chapels each more beautiful than the others... Pink marble, a magnificent cloister... All of this is built on the exact location of the Roman temple of ode to Caesar... 1 h 30 visit, easy... For 1 very reasonable price...

  • Pleasant town with an interesting history. The Church lead the narrow streets of the old town, not too crowded, but impressive

  • A wonderfully preserved piece of history!
  • A wonderful history is told through these walls. The cathedral was built for so long that it mixes several styles, and while it's a bit of a mess, I like it
