description
The beach of Miracle is situated just next to the city centre of Tarragona, but the railway track parallel to the sea separates it roughly from the city. The intention of the project is to recognise the urban character of the beach and connect it to the city structure via diverse solutions.
The roman amphitheatre and the rocks, which close the beach towards the north, hosting two fortresses from the XVIII century, mark the area of the project.
