Tarragona is located on Spain's beautiful Costa Dorada, and situated just 60 miles south-west of Barcelona. It's a destination renowned for stunning beaches, which boast golden sands and crystal clear waters that bask in the warm Mediterranean sun.
Besides its spectacular, beach-laden coastline, the effervescent port city of Tarragona offers a wealth of delights to discover within its charming ancient heart. A collection of lively bars, restaurants and trendy cafés offer up a taste of authentic modern Spanish life, while ruins of Spain's second-most important Roman site and a number of fantastic museums, centuries-old treasures and architectural highlights offer a glimpse into a fascinating history too.
Tarragona's many highlights include the magnificent Cathedral, which features a glorious mix of Romanesque and Gothic styles, and overlooks the city from its highest point; the 2nd century Roman amphitheatre; and the Roman circus, considered one of the best-preserved circuses in Europe. Las Rambla Nova, Tarragona's main street, makes for a perfect place to stroll, combining the beauty and diversity of unique historic architecture with the modernity of high-end shopping and fine dining.
