This trail is very flat and follows the GR92 over both paved and dirt roads through vineyards and olive groves. The first half passes through the towns of Canonja and Constanti before arriving at the Vil-la Romana de Centcelles. Built between the 1st and 2nd centuries AD, the villa is now a museum.

After the museum the trail deviates from the GR92 a bit to include the wonderfully preserved Aqüeducte de les Ferreres, a 2000 year old Roman aqueduct built during the reign of Emperor Augustus (27 BC to 14 AD) to supply the city of Tarraco with fresh water from the nearby River Francolí. The aqueduct is in a beautiful park and there is a cafe in the park that is open most days.

After the aqueduct, it's 5 km through the city of Tarragona to the train station.

Aqüeducte, Pont del Diable: 13 km; 50 m

Les Ferreres Aqueduct is an ancient bridge, part of the Roman aqueduct built to supply water to the ancient city of Tarraco, today Tarragona. The Tarraco aqueduct took water from the Francolí river, 15 kilometers north of Tarragona. It probably dates from the time of the emperor Augustus. Les Ferreres Aqueduct is composed of two levels of arches: the upper section has 25 arches, and the lower one has 11. All arches have the same diameter of 20 Roman feet (5.9m) with a variation of 15 cm. The distance between centres of the pillars is 26 Roman feet (7.95m). It has a maximum height of 27 metres (89 ft) and a length of 249 metres (817 ft), including the ends where the specus (water channel) runs atop a wall.

Roman walls

In the 2nd century B.C., a great wall was built around Tarraco, delimiting the municipal boundaries. The wall originally ran some 3,500 metres. Today, approximately 1,100 metres remain, bordering present-day Tarragona's Old Quarter. The walls are the oldest Roman construction still conserved outside Italy. Between the 16th and 18th centuries, they were reinforced with bulwarks, a curtain wall and exterior fortifications in order to adapt the Tarragona defences to new forms of artillery.

Tarraco amphitheater

An oval structure built in the 2nd century overlooking the sea, its stands were carved directly out of the underlying bedrock. The amphitheater is 109.5 metres long by 86.5 metres wide and can hold up to 14,000 spectators. In its day, it was the scene of fights between gladiators and against wild beasts, as well as public executions. In the year 259 A.D., the Bishop Fructuoso and his deacons Augurio and Eulogio were burned alive within its confines. In the early 6th century, a Visigoth basilica was built on the site, which was eventually replaced by the mediaeval Santa Maria del Miracle (Our Lady of the Miracle) church.
