The vaults of Mercería street

The Porches of Merceria street is the place in the historic centre which best evokes one of the medieval markets of Tarragona.

The medieval city had several markets and this stretch of street covered by medieval arches was where the vegetable market took place.

In fact, the little square at the foot of the Cathedral steps retains to this day the popular name of Plaza de los Coles (Cabbages) in reference to that market.

This construction had a twin on the other side of the Cathedral steps that was demolished in the XVIII Century.
