    Central business style hotel

    by

    When I originally lived in Tarragona, I walked by this hotel hundreds of times, but never had a need to go in. Later, after I had moved and was in Tarragona for a couple day's business I decided to try it. The hotel is arguably the most modern in the city, with comfortable furniture, the soft beds, nice linens and walls that block most of the street noise and that of the neighbors.

    Unique Quality: With a decent breakfast buffet, WiFi (free) and basement parking (~13EUR/day), small gymnasium and central location, it is a good business location.

    It is a member of the SB Hotel chain for those who have membership status.

    Directions: This is immediately on the city's main roundabout, of Plaza Imperial Tarraco. The city's bus terminal is directly behind.

Nightlife in Tarragona?

by RachaelJourneys

Hi,


I am a Canadian, traveling with my parents to Spain next February for their 25th anniversary. We are staying a couple of km from Salou. The issue? I will be 19 at the time, and they will be 58/73. They want a relaxing holiday going to churches, etc, while I'm interested in nightlife. I gather these are smaller cities/towns, but was wondering what kind of nightlife is in the area? Any places you recommend? Also how's the public transportation situation? I have no familiarity with this area so any advice is much appreciated!

-Rachael

Hello - I really don't think you need worry . It could be your parents who end up looking for a quieter place than Salou!
It is one of the most popular destinations on the Costa Dorada, particularly with young people and well known for its night life.
If you type Salou into the destination search box at top right of this VT page it will take you to the VT travel guide for Salou. Scroll down abd brose the Tips to get an ide of what it is like.

Cambrills is more relaxing and quieter than Salou and you are handy for the train to Tarragona and Barcelona. Quite a decent area to visit. :-)

I lived in Tarragona for about 2 years. Its a great city, with good nightlife and vibes of its own. However, in February, it is pretty much dead.

All the communities along that stretch of coast line will be very quiet except for Salou. Obviously it is busier during the summer, but it is the only real good party area that lasts through the winter.

Since I don't know where you will be staying at, I can't tell you the easiest way to Salou. But once you are there, you will find that Salou is not that big. You will quickly learn the busy areas.

Travel Tips for Tarragona

Roman classical and gothic style mix

by Raimix

Tarragona was a ancient Roman Tarraco and kept the architecture of Classical Roman style. It is still possible to encounter such treasures as aphiteatre or circus, remains of old wall.

Year by year the town altered its view and quite impressive gothic buildings were constructed as Cathedral, King's castle.

Nowadays town is proud for keeping an old spirit and is quite remarkable place for those who interested in Roman Empire or medieval times. Let say one of the best Roman aqueduct is still kept, but a bit away from city centre (haven't visited it).

Sant Jordi Day- April 23

by kleverkimberley

The Rambla Nova was buzzing with people on Sant Jordi day!
It's a Catalan holiday in honour of Catalonia's patron Saint - Saint George (dragon slayer).

Men and women exchange roses (to celebrate Sant Jordi) and books in tribute to Cervantes and Shakespeare, who both died on April 23 (1616).

**Various charitable and activist organizations sell the flowers and the books(I believe the money goes to support their cause).

Hiking - One huge achaeological site.

by Jerelis

Most people try to rush Tarragona on a budget so they end up missing some of the highlights in a whirlwind. The key to seeing Tarragona properly is a game plan, you must know what you want to see before setting out. Before we visited Tarragona we saw on a city map that the small town of Tarragona is divided into three areas - the historical old town, the area near Rambla Nova and the residential near Placa Imperial Tarraco. We visited the city several times, every time we hiked our way through one of the areas.

Our first hike was the old town where the city is one huge archaeological site which received the UNESCO World Heritage designation in the year 2000. It was quite strenious sometimes, but definately worth while! We started at Portal del Roser, made our way to the Correr Major (Main Street) and finally hiked way down until it ended at the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean. While most tour guides don't recommend getting lost in the alley´s, this part of Tarragona is the place to get hopelessly lost for half a day. We wondered off through mysterious and steep alleyways leading us away from the crowds. We ended up at Voltes Gotiques (old medieval marketplace), Antic Hospital (beautiful Romanesque Gothic building), mazes of hilly backstreets and deserted gardens. The real Tarragona?

Good Seafood & View of Sea

by DSwede about Forti de La Reina, Anna Stuart

An excellent taste! Gastronomic flavors with restaurant style portions. The wine list is also quiet extensive.

The restaurant is situated inside the old Fortress. You have a wonderful old atmosphere that has undergone renovations recently to make the interior modern and convenient. The windows over look the sea, beach and city of Tarragona. They do offer a few meats, but any and all seafood and fish is excellent!!
I last had the parrillada del mariscos!

Balcý del Mediterrani

by balieyes

This place where we are right now is called Mediterranean’s balcony. From here there is a great view of the sea and of the beach. Romans took advantage of the location of this city to trade with the metropolis. Many ships carried the excellent wines of this colony to Rome.
This look out is located at the end of the Rambla Nova (the city’s main avenue),
