Roman and medieval city
Tarragona is the provincial capital. It is a beautiful city that lives facing the sea. Its most emblematic street, La Rambla, ends in a large balcony that offers magnificent views over the Mediterranean Sea.
La Rambla is the main street and houses terraces, restaurants, shops and the headquarters of some public and private organizations and corporations. The street market is held there every Thursday.
Tarragona is a city marked by the historical remains of its past, especially Roman and medieval, which can be visited today in the numerous museums and open-air remains scattered throughout the city.
Also noteworthy are the city’s beaches, which stretch from its port to the north as far as the neighboring town of Altafulla. The Bosque de la Marquesa is especially beautiful, a protected natural area between Playa Larga and Playa de la Mora where the forest and the sea come together in wonderful beaches, some of them nudist.
The cultural movement of the city is also especially remarkable. This is experienced especially during the major festivals of Santa Tecla and Sant Magí or the castells contest that is held during the month of October.
The city has a wide gastronomic offer located, above all, in the Upper Part and in the Serrallo neighborhood. El Serrallo is the old fishermen’s neighborhood located in the port area. In it there are numerous restaurants specializing in seafood cuisine.
The port of Tarragona is one of the largest in Spain in terms of volume of merchandise movement. An eminently commercial port that also serves as a platform for cultural, social and sports activities.
In short, a city with its own personality; beautiful and open to receive visitors since its inception. Let yourself be amazed by the charm of its old town, the atmosphere of its corners and squares and the beauty of its beaches. Just 20 kilometers from Cambrils.
