How can you arrive to the Port of Tarragona?
On latitude 41º 0,5' North, longitude 1º, 14' East, in the Mediterranean Sea and in the Northeast of the Iberian peninsula, we find the coastal city of Tarragona.
Tarragona is a Spanish city that forms a part of the autonomous region of Catalonia.
A two thousand year old city, its origins have been reckoned to coincide with the arrival of the Romans to the peninsula, in the year 218 BC.
The need for a port and a place that could be easily protected where the reasons the Romans settled in Tarragona. They built a walled city that would be the capital of Hispania Citerior, a Roman province that covered more than half the Iberian peninsula.
From the 1960´s onwards, the city made a significant leap and surmounted a basic geographical accident: the Francolí river, and became a municipality with various clearly defined suburban centres, disconnected from the historic centre and the new central extensions.
