Roman theatre (Teatre Romà), Roman forum (Forum of Local)
Remains of the Roman theater (theatre Romà on the map), built during the reign of Augustus at the end of the first century BC.
The spectator rows were built on a natural slope that descended to the seashore and could accommodate 4-5 thousand people.
The building was used until the end of the second century, when it was destroyed by a city fire. In the following centuries, the walls of the theater were gradually dismantled for the construction of new buildings.
The ruins were discovered in 1884, and systematic excavations of Romanesque Tarraco sites began in 1919.
Most of the theater's territory is occupied by a 19th-century distillery. The famous Chartreuse is produced here.
The Roman forum (Forum Local on the map) is the center of public life in the Roman city of Tarraco. The ruins date back to the beginning of the first century ad. In the 19th century, the city began to develop intensively and most of the Roman forum was destroyed. There are ruins of an ancient Roman Basilica and the remains of some houses. And again, everything was closed.
