TARRAGONA

The city of Tarragona is located in the South of Europe and the Northeast of Spain just under 100 kilometers south of Barcelona. The province of Tarragona enjoys a privileged geographic situation on the shores of the Mediterranean and is favored by a moderate climate practically all year round. In the month of June, the average temperature is 23º C. As Lucius Annaeus Florus said, “The climate uniquely blends and blurs all the seasons so there appears to be perpetual springtime all year round.”

The complex of historic Roman monuments in Tarragona were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on November 30, 2000.

But Tarragona is much more than just Roman ruins, it also has a vibrant medieval history, art nouveau buildings, white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, a picturesque fishing and marina neighbourhood, protected forest and nature areas, traditions and popular culture, and, last but not least, the largest urban cave in Catalonia, which the most adventurous visitors to the city can descend into.

The abundant Roman ruins of the city of Tarragona are supplemented by several major monuments from its mediaeval past with a rich mediaeval artistic heritage, and best epitomised by the city’s cathedral, which offers outstanding examples of art and architecture from the Middle Ages.

REUS

Located right in the centre of the Costa Daurada, very close to the main towns on the coast, and well connected to them, Reus is a typical Catalan city, with the Mediterranean touch, well known for its shopping, modernist heritage and its close relationship to the universal Antoni Gaudí, the architect of the Expiatory temple of the Holy Family of Barcelona.

Reus, Gaudí’s birthplace, has also conserved the more emblematic sites of the architect’s childhood and youth, which you can get to know by taking a stroll along the Gaudí route, as well as a modern interpretation centre, the Gaudí Centre Reus, dedicated exclusively to the life and works of the genius.

SALOU

Salou has been a reference point in the tourism market since the 1960s and is currently one of the top quality holiday resorts on the Mediterranean. This quality is guaranteed by various quality certificates.

Its main attractions are the sun and the beach – nine golden-sand beaches, tranquil waters and a mild all-year-round climate.

The town’s geographical location, at the heart of the Costa Daurada, is perfect for a holiday resort. It is 103 km from Barcelona, 12 km from the provincial capital of Tarragona, and 9 km from Reus airport, making it easy for visitors to reach.

Salou has one of the longest holiday seasons among the Catalan resorts, starting in March and continuing through to November. In this respect, the longer opening period of PortAventura Resort has been a great help in prolonging the season.
