Tarrogona Hotels

Mini guide to Tarrogona


Tarragona is located on the Costa Dorada in the northeastern corner of Spain, just 80kms southwest of Barcelona on the Mediterranean coast. The town sits on a hillside with fantastic views out to sea, and its top attractions are the lovely nearby beaches and the Roman remains in the town.

One place not to be missed is the Passeig Arqueólogic, a half-mile walk that is lined with cypress trees and passes gardens and grottoes, as well as some superb viewpoints. Examples of these are the Seo and the Balcón del Mediterráneo, where you can rest and enjoy a sweeping panorama.

It is also enjoyable to stroll around the streets of the town itself, looking at the ancient Cyclopean Walls which run for over 1,000m and were built in the 6th century BC. The town's cathedral is a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic styles, and there is also a huge Roman amphitheatre that once seated over 12,000 people.

Just half a mile from the town centre is Muelle Costa, where there is an interesting market called Rambla Nova which is good for shopping. There are also lots of antique shops in the heart of the old town where you can browse for curiosities.

To find out more about the history and traditions of Catalonia, head inland to Mont Blanc, a former residence of kings and knights. Walking tours give you the chance to savour the medieval atmosphere of the village. The Poblet Monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage site that was abandoned in the 19th century, and then restored in the 1940s. Many consider it to be one of the most impressive monuments in the whole country.

The Costa Dorada is linked by three major motorways: the C-32 which runs from Barcelona to El Vendrell, the A-7 which runs right down the Mediterranean coast from the French border, and the A-2 that runs from Barcelona to the Basque country. There is also a railway that runs along the coast; and regular buses ply the routes all major Spanish towns. The nearest airport is at Reus, just 12kms away, and there is also an international airport in Barcelona.
