Why not go to Sitges?Great for a day out.The center of Sitges looks still very Spanish.Lots of shops,restaurants and of course the beautiful church.For those who are interested Sitges has also two small nude beaches.Its also one of the popular destinations for gay people,but you don't have to be gay to enjoy Sitges.
explore the history
"Catalunya - it's history"
I have been interested in Catalonian history, since the day I booked my first holiday to this beautiful part of europe. Each time I visit, I find something else to pass my time, or photograph, I suppose I will never really understand all of it, but enjoy what I can.
This photograph is of a hill-top fortification, used during the Spanish Civil war, now completely overgrown and not visible from google earth. I stumbled across it by chance, so much so, that I didn't explore it fully for fear of getting stuck or hurt. No one knew I was there so could have had a hard time getting any assistance had I needed it. Obviously, the local youths have discovered it at some point, but, without the vegetation it would have provided great views of Salou Bay, from Cap Salou right round to Tarragona Harbour and beyond. I intend to go back on my next trip.
I was looking for a good viewpoint to take some photographs of the ever expanding Port Aventura theme park, as I walked up this hill it offered great views inland, the Torres at Cap Salou and the theme park itself, as I got higher I could catch glimpses of the sea.
"still on the hill"
near the top there was a small ruin with a patio area. From the wall of the patio, I could get some decent shots of the inland area and between the trees some photographs of Tarragona Harbour. As I turned to make my way down, I saw a wall, probably about two feet thick. As I followed it, I came across two circular structures, each with a ramp heading into the hillside.
