Via Augusta, our roots
Via Augusta was the name that the main road received which communicated Roman Tarragona with the rest of the Empire.

Through its route in direction towards Barcelona we can discover monuments that are also a World Heritage Site, such as the Scipio tower or the Arc de Berà, and enter the territory as fascinating as the Penedès, where the cultivation of the vineyard and the Visits to wineries are one of the great attractions, and where, just minutes from Tarragona, Bodegas Avgvstvs Forvm awaits you.
