Ruta 1 From Roman Tarraco to the Modernist cellars of the Alt Camp

Starting in Tarragona, recently declared a World Heritage site, we can visit some of the well-conserved Roman monuments that remind us of when Tarraco was one of the most important cities of the Roman Empire. The visit can be combined with a walk through the Part Alta with its narrow winding streets, charming squares and the dominant cathedral. Later we recommend a walk through the fishing district by the port, the Serrallo, where you can sample the cuisine of this Mediterranean sea and local delicacies like Romesco.

From Tarragona we head inland towards the Alt Camp, a county largely made up of vineyards around the capital, Valls. Valls is famous for being the birthplace of Castells, human towers, and for Cal莽ots, a local delicacy that has grown in popularity in recent years. A good cal莽otada should always be accompanied by the wines of the immediate villages, easily discoverable in the local cooperatives, many built by the modernist architect Cesar Martinell, or in the increasing number of small cellars specialising in wine tourism.
