Google maps sent us to the wrong place - it is now situated on the water's edge at the port. Lots of history given, in several languages. Easy to follow the history of Tarragona chronologically. Some fabulous remains.

This is a very interesting attraction. More than just a museum, this place has many pathways that lead in different directions which enhance the feeling of exploring this ancient site. Up top you will have an excellent view of the surrounding area.
