The old quarter of Tarragona

The historical area of Tarragona is called the “Parte Alta” and is situated in the most elevated zone of ancient Tarraco.

In this neighbourhood, which has a current population of 3,600 inhabitants, we can find a large proportion of Tarragona’s monumental heritage.

At the beginning of our era, the imperial temple, the provincial forum, and the roman circus were erected. Today, surrounded still by the roman walls and presided over by the Cathedral, it retains the medieval layout with its old manor houses, the Jewish quarter, and arched streets in a remarkable urban landscape.

In this place, as writers of old have said, a stroll through its streets is, in itself, a walk through a veritable archaeological museum.
