We went on a Monday, when most of the Roman sites were closed, but the Antiga Audiencia was the one that we did find open. Interesting to get an idea of the scale of the Roman port.

This is a really good model of how the town of Tarragona (or Tarraco) would have looked back in the Roman days. Free entry and worth a look to help you relate to the Roman remains that you'll still see in the old town today.

Quick stop to see as this was a free entrance place. One of the few. Cool model showing the city. Get a good sense of how the city was

The model is very detailed and allows you to visualize the ancient town. I learned that it was the Roman capital of the Iberian peninsula, still I was amazed by the size and beauty of the city.
