Spain

Iberia enters written records as a land populated largely by the Iberians, Basques and Celts. Early on its coastal areas were settled by Phoenicians who founded Western Europe’s most ancient cities Cadiz and Malaga. Phoenician influence expanded as much of the Peninsula was eventually incorporated into the Carthaginian Empire, becoming a major theatre of the Punic Wars against the expanding Roman Empire. After an arduous conquest, the peninsula came fully under Roman Rule.

During the early Middle Ages it came under Germanic rule but later, much of it was conquered by Moorish invaders from North Africa. In a process that took centuries, the small Christian kingdoms in the north gradually regained control of the peninsula. The last Moorish kingdom fell in the same year Columbus reached the Americas. A global empire began which saw Spain become the strongest kingdom in Europe, the leading world power for a century and a half, and the largest overseas empire for three centuries.

Continued wars and other problems eventually led to a diminished status. The Napoleonic invasions of Spain led to chaos, triggering independence movements that tore apart most of the empire and left the country politically unstable.

Prior to the Second World War, Spain suffered a devastating civil war and came under the rule of an authoritarian government, which oversaw a period of stagnation that was followed by a surge in the growth of the economy.

Eventually democracy was peacefully restored in the form of a parliamentary constitutional monarchy. Spain joined the European Union, experiencing a cultural renaissance and steady economic growth until the beginning of the 21st century, that started a new globalised world with economic and ecological challenges.

The city of Tarragona

In addition, one can discover the rich medieval and modern heritage, the magnificent beaches and the wide range of recreational, cultural, festive activities in Tarragona

The Cathedral
Built on 12th-14th century, in the highest point of the capital, in the same site where there was once an ancient Roman temple dedicated to the imperial cult.
Roman Amphitheatre
Building that held fights between gladiators (2nd century), over which the Visigoth basilica was built (6th century) as well as a Romanesque church (12th century).
Tarragona’s beaches
Are renowned for their extremely fine, golden sand, with a very mild slope which allows walking in the water or swimming as from 200 m from the beach line. Its privileged geographic location allows enjoying a mild climate throughout the year.
Praetorium and Roman Circus
Roman tower at the Provincial Forum square (1st century) transformed into a royal palace (14th century). Roman Circus Building used to hold horse and chariot races (1st century).
