Tarragona Street
Railroad Street
Former names: Calle de Tarragona
South end: Main Street
Garden Street
North end: North of Texar Drive

The street is present on the 1812 Pintado plan, where it is labelled Calle de Tarragona.

Tarragona's southern terminus is at Main Street just north of the Port of Pensacola and the bay; from there it travels northerly uninterrupted to Blount Street, at which point it is interrupted for three blocks, resuming at Avery Street and traveling northerly uninterrupted to Cross Street. Tarragona is interrupted between Cross and Crescent Drive, resuming at Crescent and traveling northerly uninterrupted to its northern terminus, just north of Texar Drive.

For much of Pensacola's history, Tarragona Street was informally referred to by the name Railroad Street, given that railroad tracks run within or beside the street for much of its length.
