Ancient Roman city wall ruins

They belong to the Tarragona archaeological site and are a UNESCO World Heritage site. Three towers and several sections of the wall still remain intact.

The Roman city wall is known as the archaeological walk. The walls were built between the end of the 3rd century and the early 2nd century B.C. Only the upper area of the original walls remains standing. It still retains several sections of wall and three towers: Cabiscol tower, Minerva tower and Arzobispo tower. Minerva tower is the most typically Roman of all, while Arzobispo tower was modified during Medieval times.
