    Day trip to Barcelona

    by clueless83 Written Apr 22, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Salou is just over an hour drive from Barcelona so is a good place to stay if you want to visit the city for the day. We booked a coach trip with our rep and were taken to the olympic stadium, Parc Guell and La Rambla.

    We also saw the Sagrada Familia (cathedral) and on my first trip to Barcelona (but not my second) we were given the opportunity to visit Nou Camp - home to Barcelona FC.

    See my Barcelona page for more information.

    Culture... In Salou?

    by ALANinWORCS69 Updated Apr 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yes there is... if you look. Head towards the "Old Town" (in this case "old" refers to the 1950's), opposite the Sailing Club (Puerto Club Nautica) is Placa De Bonet. Here you will find a bit of Gaudi... well almost... The architect Domènec Sugrañes built Chalet Bonet here. Domènec Sugrañes was an associate of Gaudi, he was born just up the road in Reus and was the successor to Gaudi in the design/construction of the Sagrada Familia Temple in Barcelona; being the architect in charge from Gaudis death in 1926 until his own death in 1936.
    He was obviously much influenced by Gaudi as his designs are very similar in style to Gaudi's... Take a look at the top of Chalet Bonet, when I first spotted it I was sure it was A Gaudi.

    Cap Salou

    by xdc33 Updated Jun 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cap Salou is the cap right in the north of Salou (between Salou and La Pineda). You can get there easily by bus because there is a bus station right on the cap and espacially in summer busses arrive there frequently. The Cap Salou is full of nice little bays (all out-described) and some other nice spots like the lighthouse (A) (special tip: go there with you girlfriend at night :-) Another interesting spot is what we only call 'The Curve' (B) there are some pubs, restaurants and a club in this curve that you'll find very easy. Don't miss a dinner at Paddock the best restaurant of Salou ;-) Additionally a shop called Nuria (C) offers all things you need at Non-Tourist-Nap prices. So if you spend your holidays in Salou City spending one or more days on the Cap Salou is just perfect!

    MONUMENT A JAIME I

    by Lalique Written Feb 25, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The monument is situated in the centre of the Paseo de Jaime I. It was erected in 1965 in memory of King James I, who sailed from the port of Salou in 1229, to conquer Majorca, and at that time was in power of the “sarrainos”.

    MASIA CATALANA

    by Lalique Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Masia Catalana is of a relatively modern construction – 1974. Traditional materials were used in its construction, which evoke a truly rural ambit. The visitor can not only contemplate a diverse range of farming tools, but also the farm animals which were to be found in the traditional farmhouse of the time. Even the water wheel, where a donkey toils to extract water for the kitchen garden.
    In summer a handicraft and craftsman market is held.
