Tarragona is a port city located in northeast Spain on the Costa Daurada by the Mediterranean Sea. Founded before the 5th century BC, it is the capital of the Province of Tarragona and part of Tarragonès and Catalonia. Geographically, it is bordered on the north by the Province of Barcelona and the Province of Lleida. One Catalan legend holds that it named for Tarraho, eldest son of Tubal in c. 2407 BC; another attributes the name to ‘Tearcon the Ethiopian’, a 7th-century BC pharaoh who campaigned in Spain. The real founding date of Tarragona is unknown.
Tarragona is home to a large port and the Rovira I Virgili University. Much of its economic activity comes from a large number of chemical industries located south of the city. The central living heritage is the Popular Retinue, a grand parade of dances, bestiary and spoken dances- and the human towers. They especially participate in Santa Tecla Festival. They are so prevalent in the city and also in all Catalonia that they have got their own home.
