Tarragona Cathedral

The most visited monument in the city

 Considered the first Cathedral in Catalonia, the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Tarragona is located in the highest part of the city

More than two thousand years ago Tarragona was known as the roman city of Tarraco. During this time, the place where the Cathedral stands was occupied by the Roman armies.  Fast forward to 1171 and the construction of the Cathedral had begun. Later in 1331, it was consecrated by the Archbishop of Tarragona and Patriarch of Alexandria.

Today it is the most visited monument in the city and one of the great tourist attractions of the Costa Daurada

It is best known for its grandeur and solid architecture as well as for being the first cathedral in Catalonia. You can see the stylistic evolution as you walk through the site from the naves, the buttresses and the chapels.
