Plaça del Forum
Not far from the Cathedral, in the 'Plaça del Forum',
theres this part of the old Roman Forum. Imperial Tarraco
was a Roman province till the end of the Empire. Soon after,
the city was invaded by the Visigoths. In 716 AC Islamic troops
invaded the city, which remained under the Islamic domination
till the 11th century. In the 13th century the city underwent
an expansion period, which didnt last long. In the 14th
century a plague killed a quarter of the population.
We will take a look
