About Tarragona, Spain
Tarragona is a port and commercial center, it has an oil refinery, flour mills, and a large wine export. Some of Spain's finest wines are made in the nearby Priorato region. An Iberian town, ancient Tarraco was captured by the Romans in the Second Punic War, and was fortified by them against Carthage. The Carthusian monks expelled from the Grande Chartreuse in France settled in the city and still produce their famous liqueur.
