Can you walk to Pont del Diable (aqueduct) from town?
I really want to see the Aqueduct, but I will be taking the train to Tarragona.
Is there a trail or road to walk from the town to Pont del Diable, the Aqueduct?
RE: Can you walk to Pont del Diable (aqueduct) from town?
you probably can, you can see it is behind the Wall, but it won't be a short walk.
RE: RE: Can you walk to Pont del Diable (aqueduct) from town?
It's about 5 km from the city centre. Once I went walking there but it was many years ago. We took a bus to return, but I can't remember it's number. You may ask at the tourist info points, or at the train station once there. Hope it helps. Have a nice trip!
Travel Tips for Tarragona
Still authentic, not refurbished old town
The place still is not so full of tourist, it means not so "prepared" for them. Old part looks authentic, not so much shining and not so much reconstructed; it is more charm than a negative thing.
In my opinion it is a place, suitable for visit if you are longer time in Barcelona. That is more, place is very important for whose who search for Roman traces.
It is possible town will soon be more refurbished, as it is one of candidates to be European capital of culture in 2016.
People there is so friendly,...
People there is so friendly, we say that people from 'Deltebre' is very different than the rest of villages... they are so special. why? Their unique sense of humor. Sometimes a little bit difficult to understand for some people....
Doesn't matter how you travel...
Doesn't matter how you travel between Salou and Tarragona, for 10kms you will notice only one thing - oil refineries! Some, as shown in this photo, they have tried to pretty up and they certainly are colourful. They are also, just as certainly, oil refineries. Unquestionably Spain's oil refinery capital.
It was built during the flavia dinasty (by 73aC). This ensemble of buildings were constructed on two terraces-squares: the first square was dedicated to the imperial cult and the second one was dedicated to the administration of the province (Hispania Citerior). The ensemble was completed with the circus, built during the age of Diocleciano
The forum was the place where the council of Hispania Citerior notables met once a year in Tarraco to do the public rituals to the cult of the emperor. It seems to have been the seat of the court of the province
L'Amfiteatre Romà - Symbol of an important city.
Like we said: Tarragona played a main role during the Roman domination of Hispania (Iberian Panisnula). In those years many of the city's monuments were erected. We left the walled city and via a stop at a playing ground for kids, we walked towards L'Amfiteatre Romà. The location of the amphitheater wasn't chosen by accident. It is very close to the Via Augusta (main road towards Rome), just before the road enters the city, and near the beach, where the animals used in the spectacles were disambarked.
The amphitheatre completed the trio of buildings (theatre, circus and amphitheater) to hold spectacles in, which were the symbols of an important Roman city and capital of an Imperial province. Its construction was made possible by the euergetic donation of an (yet unknown) Imperial Priest. At the information sign, just next to the entrance, we read that two types of spectacles were held here: gladiator combats (munera) and wild animal hunts (venationes). It was also used to execute prisoners who had been redemned to death.
