On our way back home from Valencia we stopped briefly in Tarragona to 1) take the missionaries to lunch, 2) see the missionaries' new piso (apartment), and 3) visit the bus station where a photograph of two missionaries is on display.
Tarragona was the Roman capital of Iberia. If Paul did in fact visit Spain (see Romans 15:24-28) he would have sailed into the port of Tarragona. Local legend is that he arrived in 64 A.D.
We have a great ward in Tarragona, part of the Hospitalet Stake, and two great missionaries serve here: Elders Close and Mattice. On Friday when we visited, Elders Monks and Knudson were in town from Villafranca (Elder Monks was conducting a baptismal interview).
