Independent visit

Visit Tarragona Cathedral at your own pace; 2,000 years of history in a single site

Tarragona Cathedral is a jewel in Catalonia's heritage that's a joy to discover. Its walls bear witnesses to over 2,000 years of history that you can enjoy during your visit to the different areas.

Located in the highest part of the city of Tarragona, the Cathedral stands on the site where the Temple of Augustus once stood, at the time of the Roman city of Tarraco. The imposing central nave with its Romanesque floor plan is surprisingly well-lit and the impressive rose window on the main façade in the Gothic style is one of the most emblematic features of the Cathedral, as well as the magnificent Renaissance organ and the meticulous Gothic reredos at the main altar. The side naves have numerous chapels that are examples of the different artistic styles you'll appreciate.

The visit also includes access to the largest Romanesque cloister in Catalonia, through an impressive Romanesque doorway, as well as to the various spaces that make up the Diocesan Museum, which holds an important range of mediaeval art including a magnificent Gothic collection. The visit also includes the Archaeological Route that takes you along the perimeter wall of the imperial city of Tarraco and the canons' rooms, where the most representative pieces from prehistory are exhibited.
