The art of trompe l'oeil in Tarragona.
Jan 2020
The art of trompe l'oeil -murals, bogus is most developed in France, which is evident already by the title. The largest number of them is not in Paris, but in Lyon. Although even in the days of Ancient Rome, this technique was actively used in architecture to create the illusion of a spacious room. To do this, artists draw additional windows or an atrium. Andrea Mantegna, Jean-Francois de Le Motte and Antoine Faure-Bras became famous in this capacity during the Renaissance. Tarragona, of course, is not Lyon, but it has one fresco that has become one of the symbols of the city. The blank wall of the house is painted by the famous Catalan artist Carles Arola. in 1995. The artist and his wife can be seen on the third floor of the mansion of the XIX century. On the painted balconies are a harlequin, a captain, a doctor, and a lady. Trompe l'oeil technique makes the image three-dimensional. and from the center of the square, everything looks like reality.

Quirky part of the City
Jul 2020
When you are strolling around the old streets, it can be easy to miss the Place dels Sedassos, but they are well worth seeing.

Building Mural
Jan 2020 • Solo
Located within Casco Antiguo is this lovely street with an entire building covered in a mural. It makes for some great photo opportunities. There are some interesting Roman ruins nearby as well.

Walking through the old part of the city we came across this 'home'. Like the other tourists around us we took some photos and spent a few moments taking it all in.

Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to create a mural that is entertaining and well presented. An amazing and comedic sight.

Stumbled across this, expected more. It's a one-off could have been expanded to more buildings, many of the surrounding ones are run down.

Interesting square
Jul 2018
Nice, small and interesting place in the centre of the city. A good place to take some pictures, have a drink or grab a bite. The painting on the wall it's lovely and a representative spot of Tarragona. The art work is perfect. You shouldn't miss it.
