TARRAGONA TOUR (on the 3rd day of the Barcelona conference)
25 May 2016: The motorcoach departs from our conference center in Barcelona at 9:00 AM
TARRAGONA (Latin: Tarraco) is a port city located in the north-east of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea. It is the capital of the Tarragona province, bordered on the north by the province of Barcelona. The city has a population of over 130,000.
The Roman Ruins of Tarraco have been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Throughout the town, Latin and Phoenician inscriptions on the stones mark the early historical significance of this special place once enjoyed by an emperor, Augustus, who transformed it into a little Rome.
The town's medieval heart is one of the most beautifully designed in Spain, its maze of narrow cobbled streets encircled by steep walls and crowned with a splendid cathedral.
On top of this, a number of beaches carry the Blue Flag designation, a certification by the Foundation for Environmental Education that the beaches meet stringent standards.
