At €3.30 this is an inexpensive former ancestral museum house, to visit. It is over several floors including a garden below, a small exhibition and a number of rooms to explore. However, other than a very small little booklet really only consisting of the identity of each of the rooms as well as a very short history written in general... More

This house doesn't look much from the outside, and looks really small, but once you get inside it is lovely. Huge rooms upstairs, and a lovely enclosed courtyard open to the sky in the centre. Part of the multi-site ticket

Tarragona is a great city and has a tone of history. Loved every part of the Roman empire that was there and the history and the amazing structures still in place. MUST SEE!!!

If you want to understand what the lavish lifestyle afforded those of the nobility, visit. If not, skip it.

We came here as part of our Tarragona card, which gave us entrance to many of the main sights in Tarragona. To be honest, we probably wouldn't have come here if we didn't have the card, but that would have been our loss. From the outside, it looks like many other slightly shabby buildings in this part of the city.... More

Casa Castellarnau is a noble house in Carrer Cavallers, off Carrer Major in the Old Town of Tarragona. The street used to be one of the most important times in the Middle Ages, so all noble families built their mansions there. Casa Castellarnau is a well-kept mansion, from its façade and surroundings you don't expect what you can find inside.... More

This is like walking back 2000 years and watching modern day people live in aa village built by the Romans. The use of this city has not been damaged and sympathetic restoration of its history is apparent in all the buildings who maintain their historic facade. The old square must be something else at night!

Part of the roman ruin package and near to the Muralles - it's worth looking through if you are there.
