Roda de Bará
Twenty kilometres north of Tarragona capital is Roda de Barà, a tourist town on the Costa Daurada one of the symbols of which is its Roman arch.
In the Tarragona region, between Calafell and Torredembarra, stands Roda de Barà. It was already an important hub of communications in the Roman age as the Augustan Way passed through here. Standing on this major route is the town's most emblematic monument, the Barà Arch. It is an imposing triumphal arch more than 10 metres high which was erected in memory of the Roman consul Lucio Licinio Sura in the early 2nd century AD, in the times of the emperor Trajan.
Roda de Barà is also a major tourist and residential area on the Costa Daurada. As such, it has beaches of fine, golden sand, like playa Larga or playa Pelliseta, and with modern nautical facilities which allow you to make the most of this sunny coastline. Around the coast, you can admire the sanctuary of Mare de Déu de Barà and the remains of a defensive tower.
