    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Not far at all from Barcelona by train. (Less than an hours ride) Get on the train in Barcelona early or you may not have a seat.

    Fondest memory: The mix of traditional Spanish architecture and Roman influence. Note the picture below.

    Favorite thing: In the year 218 b.C, the Romans arrived to what is nowadays the city of Tarragona and remained there until the late 2nd century of our era (For them also was a wonderful place to stay ;-) yeah!). As a result of their presence and the influence thay had on the area, we may nowadays find many architectural remains that are a tribute to this civilisation. I should mention specially: the Roman amphitheatre, the Roman Road, The Forum, The Circus, the Palace of the Magistrate, the summer residence of Pontius Pilate, and the temple devoted to Emperor Augustus...

    Fondest memory: When I'm away from Tarragona I miss all the Cultural Heritage of this great city!

    Favorite thing: go to the beach...
    there is just next to the touristic port a pretty and little beach. I really enjoyed that beach cause it's more quite and intimate of the bigger one and it's easilly reachable from the train station.

    Fondest memory: What I'll never forget it's the colour of the sand. Tarragona it's along the COSTA DAURADA 'golden coast' and it' unbelievable but true.... it seems that some gold powder it's mixed to the sand so that the beach it's brightening and golden!!! It's so cool!!!

    Favorite thing: go to SALOU (some 15 km from Tarragona) to see what the famous COSTA DORADA is all about. Salou is the most lively resort on the Costa Dorada. The coastline is mainly flat, with shallow waters and the long beaches of golden sand from which it takes its name.
    If you are already there don't miss a visit in PORT AVENTURA - Spain's first Thematic Park - where you will get to know five different cultures: Mediterrania, Mexico, Polynesia, China and the Far West. It is a VT World in a miniature ;-)

    Favorite thing: Other nice tip is Perxar. As you guys see in the picture with a that boat and a big kind of pole we can sail the delta. It is hard to "drive" it.
    It's only €3 per person 1 hour.
    HAVE FUN
