Cambrils is known as a sea destination, and not without goo reason. It has 7 miles of beaches, suitable for all ages. Even children have their place in the so-called oasis, shaded areas and swings without leaving the beach. Cambrils beaches are quiet, without much noise or too many waves, making them an ideal place to unwind and relax.
Montblanc is the capital of the region of Conca de Barbera in Tarragona. It was declared to be of monumental and artistic interest, and it is amazing. On the outside it's ugly and industrial, but once you step inside it is amazing. Besides strolling through its medieval streets you can visit churches and palaces, enjoy a calçotada at various restaurants or go to a cellar in a modernist winery.
One of the things that captivated us about Cambrils (besides the cuisine and beaches) was the fishing port. One of the nicest I've visited, it is functiona both day and night. On the day we met the fishermen painting their boats, gear preparing or repairing their nets. In the afternoon and evening, they go to sea. A quiet and romantic place ...
Tamarit is one of the prettiest towns on the Costa Dorada, Tarragona. This beautiful beach is located in the town of Tamarit, and in order to access it you must pass through several campsites at the entrance. I recommend camping at Tamarit, as it is top notch and some plots and bungalows have direct access to the beach.
Gaudí revolutionized architecture and built many of Barcelona’s most iconic buildings. But, Gaudí was originally from Reus but, as the Spanish saying goes, “no one is a prophet in their own land”, and Gaudí never built anything in his hometown. But, this center does offer a way to get to know his work and understand the originality and genius behind his style of architecture which started as simple experimentation and ended up giving birth to the Sagrada Familia Cathedral.
The best part is that you can touch everything and it is completely interactive.
The only noise you will hear is the nature calling you. People are really kind but surprised for having tourists. It is interesting. There are a few bars and they close like 23 P.M and you need to move with a car to buy whatever you need because there is no supermarket around.
For a few days each year, Tarragona ceases to be a city of stone and is instead filled with bright colors, peoples, smells and tastes.
Locals and visitors fill the streets and enjoy every corner of the imperial city. All Catalan traditions intersect in this week-long fiesta. Today, I enjoyed Castellers (human towers), cuisine, and interesting visits to some of the most emblematic museums of this World Heritage city.
And this was before the festivities officially began! The big day is on the 23rd of September, the day of Santa Tecla, patron saint of Tarragona. It’s a festival of national interest, ideal for enjoying with friends, family, and children.
The website is very comprehensive and you can download the entire program for the various parades and the final procession. It’s a wonderful traditional party and highly recommended. The best thing is to come by train or by public transportation as parking is very difficult, or at least leave the car outside the city and walk, a surefire way to discover even more interesting little corners of the city.
It's been a great summer. This is a place where you can relax and enjoy many activities. But the thing that I like best is to walk through the streets of the old town in the afternoon, sit on a terrace and spend a quiet time relaxing. The beach is clean and well maintained and above all there are areas where you can snorkel, my biggest hobby.
The Cambrils Sea-Walk stretches for 4 kilometers along the coast, but in reality the entire thing measures nine kilometers from point to point. The marina is in the part closest to the city center, but it’s more relaxing to head a bit outside of the city center and explore the route on a bike or segway.
Playa de Levante is located in Salou on the Costa Dorada. There's a lot of sun and the water has a great temperature for swimming, but there are plenty of other things to do on the beach, to suit all ages and tastes. There's a kids' play area, as well as a beach volleyball court where you can play under the watchful eye of supervisors. There are little beach bars where you can enjoy a beer on the terrace, and until 7pm, you have the opportunity to hire paddle boats to enjoy a little time on the calm waters. At the end of the beach is a tourist information point and two wooden huts where you can book boat and catamaran trips. The word "boredom" isn't in the dictionary in Salou!
This is the beach in Cunit, the northernmost town along the Tarragona coast. I loved walking along the beach in the early morning, but as you can see from the photos, this day there was a storm coming in.
They’re some of the most imposing creatures you can find in captivity. A sea lion’s roar is huge and does justice to its size. Swimming with sea lions is a show that lets you get close to these amazing animals. You can only swim with and touch the female sea lions which are much calmer than the male ones.
The best is the small class you get to know how they work, how they move, how they feed, and, above all, to differentiate the female seals.
Montblanc is a surprise hidden in the heart of the Tarragona province and proves once and for all that Tarragona’s charms aren’t limited to just the beach! The medieval district is beautiful and well-preserved and has a touch of modesty which I really liked. The old Jewish quarter, winding narrow streets, archways, convents, churches, and palaces are all found here, but I especially liked the walled city. That this place has been declared a Historic-Artistic Monument is no surprise. It’s fun to get lost in the narrow streets, explore the cute little shops and art galleries, and visit the museums.
It’s a place where the stones talk and have a lot of history to tell, especially about the city’s most famous legend: that of Sant Jordí i el Drac (St. George and the Dragon), a legend which gave birth to one of the most beautiful festivals in all of Catalonia. Feeling like a prince or princess in a fairy tale is pretty easy when you’re in a place like this. An entire magical world of knights, princesses, and legends comes alive in this beautiful and incomparable part of Tarragona. All you have to do is pass under the archway.
Torredembarra Beach is a very quiet place to go with friends to enjoy a well deserved break after a year of work. The picture was taken early in the morning;I love going for a walk with my camera out at this time of the day.
We went to the cove and we recommended it here as we loved it: the fine sand, great water, it was a great success and you can take your pet with you, although it is a bit difficult to access, it is worth it because the road is amazing.
