The start point is no inside the museum as the map indicates. It’s just outside though. We loved this, you will not just stumble across all these amazing sites without guidance. The historic part of the city, where this is located is absolutely stunning! You only cover a small part of the city which is fab, within minutes you’re at the next point of interest! Stop for tapas in one of the squares! Fabulous! Would highly recommend. Best money I’ve ever spent!

Fabulous interactive game that lead us to see parts of Tarragona that we had already walked past and not noticed! Packed full of historical information and tips. Great way to pass a Sunday afternoon (26/6) when the museums/shops are closed. Only issue we had was finding the starting point as the Google map link had us go round in circles 3 times before we found the exact address…I’d advise others to use a paper map that are available in the tourist information office to locate the start point.

What a great way to discover a city! I ended up learning a lot about Tarragona. There were a lot of nice hidden gems I would probably have missed, if I had walked around the city on my own. The quizzes were also very exciting and fun. I can't wait to play it on my next trip!
