Its name derives from the count Berà. It is a triumphal arch with a single opening consisting of a central body on a podium, decorated with fluted pilasters crowned by Corinthian capitals. The upper part of the construction is an entablature made up of architrave, frieze and cornice. The stone used is probably from a local quarry.
The monument was built as a result of the will of Lucius Licinius Sura and it was erected in the reign of Augustus, around 13 BCE. The surviving inscription reads: “Ex testamento L Licini L f Serg Surae consa”. It is thought it was dedicated to Augustus or to his genius, and that it marked the limit of the district of Tarraco.

Hace años recorriamos con el coche la carretera que discurria por el medio. Sigue en pie al cabo de casi dos mil años recordándonos nuestra historia. more »Years ago we drove the road through the middle. He still stands after almost two thousand years reminding us of our history.
Nice triumphal arc middle of the moderd road on top of ancient via Augusta. Well worth stopping. No good parking and road crossing bit dangerous.
It is a Roman triumphal arch from 1st century BC dedicated to Emperor Augustus. A nice landmark right at the entrance to Park Playa Bara. Pity it is in the middle of the busy road so there is no atmosphere to admire it. But thanks to the arc you never miss your turn to the camping.
