  • Gorgeous Museum with Roman artifacts found in Tarragona. One of the most beautiful tasks in this city. Friendly and professional staff.

  • The Museum has a varied Exposition-antique statues, mosaics, tombstones, frescoes. However, loses the Museum with some sense of understatement. Given the rich history of ancient Tarragona, expected more.
