History and Monuments
Legend has it that Jupiter, the God, left his wife, the mortal Tiria, when he fell in love with Tarragona, a city which captivated him. History tells that in 218 B.C. the Romans strategically settled in this place and that it became the capital of Hispania Citerior as time went on. From that magnificence there still survives a very rich monumental heritage that allows us to admire some remains from the Roman Empire such as "La Muralla", which surrounds the old part of the city, "El Forum", "L'Amfiteatre", "L'Aqüeducte", "La Torre dels Escipions" and "L'Arc de Berà".
