How to get to Poblet monastery by public transportation?

by demch

Hi All,

Can somebody advice how to get to the Poblet monastery from Tarragona.

I will be staying in the hotel in Tarragona and would like to have a one day trip to Poblet monastery.

I cannot find anything at Renfe or Alsa website. Is there local train or bus routes?

Thanks,

Yuri Demchenko

There are trains from Tarragona to L'Espluga de Francoli (3.5 Km from the monastery), maybe you can get a bus or taxi from there, I'm not sure, always have been to Poble by car

And the buses from Tarragona to Lleida do stop at the monastery of Poblet
You will see the timetables at the Poblet's website:

http://www.poblet.cat/

Anyway, go to the tourist info office once you're in Tarragona and they will help you. Or at your hotel

If you can combine the same daytrip to Santes Creus or Montblanc, these are nice places to visit too

Darn it! Belsita, you beat me to it again. I have to be faster next time.

I agree with Belsa's info. Poblet is really worth a visit. I rented a car in Barcelona and drove from there.

I can recommend this restaurant in L'Espluga de Francoli:

Restaurant L'Ocell Francoli
Passeig Canyellas 2-3
43440 L´espluga De Francoli, Spain

Get Directions
977 871 216

I had a wonderful lunch there with my family. L'Espluga is small. Ask directions at the little bakery right off the highway; they were the ones who recommended it to us.

Travel Tips for Tarragona

Don't forget to visit the...

by Zoe_bcn

Don't forget to visit the differents villages.. all of them are very different... Deltebre, Poblenou del Delta, Sant Jaume d'Enveja, Amposta, Alcanar, St. Carles de la Ràpita.... My fondest memory..... well... I live in Barcelona, an stressing city as you can suppose...... so, every time I arrive to the Delta del Ebre, there is an special smell that reminds me where i am... Its difficult to describe this smell but imagine hundreds of Km. just with rice fields... make me feel free in the middle of all this nature!

The Sardana.

by Jerelis

The Sardana is Catalonia's national dance and is more complicated than it probably appears. It succes depends on the dancers forming a circle and accurately counting the complicated short- and long-step skips and jumps, which accounts for their serious faces. Music is provided by a cobla ( an 11-person band consisting of a leader playing a three-holde flute (flabiol) and a little drum (tambori), five woodwind players and five brass players. The Sardana is performed during most 'festes' and at special day-long gatherings called 'aplecs'. In Barcelona it is danced every Sunday evening at 18:30u in the Placa de Sant Jaume.

We had quite a nice experience with this dance being in Tarragona. We were sitting in the sun having a nice cool beer in the Old Town. All of a sudden we saw a lot of people gathering together and suddenly heared music and the clapping of hands. I had a look and saw that some local people just spontaniously started to dance The Sardana. Just great!

Montserrat - mountains and monastery

by Raimix

Montserrat is an escape to quite unusual Spanish mountains and monastery. Montserrat means “Teeth Mountains”, actually mountains look like teeth. The research showed that such form mountains were formed due to the sea water polishing in prehistoric times.

Monastery is known from medieval times, but got new look in 19th century and it stands in 800 meters high mountains. What is more, it is possible to walk or take funicular to 1236 meters high place. Place is famous for keeping statue of St. Mary.

Taragona is about 100 kilometers from Serra de Montserrat.

For further information watch my Serra de Montserrat VirtualTourist page.

Forum Local Romà - Friendly entrance fee.

by Jerelis

The Forum Local Romà was located in the lower part of the Roman city, in the residential area, half way between the provincial administration sector and the port. Today it is delimited by Cervates, Lleida, Soler and Gasometre Street. We had some difficulties on finding the entrance at Lleida Street and we even walked under the footbridge over Soler Street, seeing both parts of the Forum, but not able to enter it. Quite rustrating!

But anyway, we found the entrance and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly entrance fee of €2,20 per adult and the kids were free! We learned that a large number of sections of buildings have been excavated in this particular area and many inscriptions and statues have been found, especially of emperors and members of the imperial family. We immediately saw one of the main buildings of the Forum - the judicial basilicia, which was built in the time of either Augustus or Tiberius and would have been located at the northeastern end of the forum square. The preserved remains include some of the columns that separated the main nave from the side naves and a series of small rooms that were probably the offices of the judicial administration.

1 october to the week before Easter:
* Tuesday - Saturday: 09:00u - 17:00u;

Easter to 30 september:

Fireworks contest

by DSwede

The second week in July is host to an international fireworks competition. Not that the locals need an excuse to enjoy a party or fiesta, but they welcome it when ever possible. This contest showcases 5~8 demonstrations from 6~8 invited international teams.

Edit: This year the Festival is July 3~8: So not saying my original post was wrong, but the local authorities probably alter the dates slightly from year to year to maintain the day of the week. Check the web site or search "fireworks Tarragona" (Google or yahoo) for current year's information.

Example:
3rd of July: Japan
4th of July: Spain (Valencia)
5th of July: Italy (Sicilia)
6th of July: Spain (Catalonia)
7th of July: Italy/Germany
8th of July: Spain (Valencià)
