It speaks volumes that Tarragona Cathedral is the city's must-visit attraction, even ahead of its UNESCO-listed Roman amphitheatre. It's fascinating and tranquil spot to stroll around, gathering your thoughts and admiring the intricacy of its Romanesque, Gothic and baroque features. What's more, it rarely gets as busy as other sights in the Costa Dorada.
Built over the ruins of an ancient Roman temple and a medieval mosque, its unfinished façade is one of the symbols of the city. With this ticket, you can explore three very different areas. An audioguide option is also available.
The restored nave, bathed by a kaleidoscope of colours from the rose window, is flanked by intricately decorated chapels devoted to saints. Then there's the Diocesan Museum, which has a collection of religious art and objects. But perhaps the most alluring area is the Gothic cloister. Medieval themes, such as rats conducting a cat's funeral, are depicted in its carved capitals.
