Roman Villa of Centcelles

The villa was built at the beginning of the first century B.C. beside the river Tulcis (Francolí). It is an ancient rural villa, which conserves a thermal area and a mausoleum from the IV Century. It has had different uses over the centuries and was even a masía in the XIX Century.

Centcelles stands out for its decorated dome with a beautiful mosaic, where hunting and biblical scenes are depicted, as well as figures that historians and archeologists have yet to interpret. This is the oldest preserved mosaic from the roman world and is considered to be a master work of paleo-Christian art.

It is located 5 kilometers from Tarragona, in the municipality of Constantí. The best way to arrive there is by taking the exit of the A-27 motorway.
