Introducing Tarragona

The eternally sunny port city of Tarragona is a fascinating mix of Mediterranean beach life, Roman history and medieval alleyways. Easily Catalonia’s most important Roman site, Tarragona’s number-one attraction is its seaside-facing Roman amphitheatre. The town’s medieval heart is one of the most beautifully designed in Spain, its maze of narrow cobbled streets encircled by steep walls and crowned with a splendid cathedral and its sandstone buildings seemingly suffused with golden light. Add into the mix plenty of tempting food options and an array of bars heaving into the wee hours and you get the most exciting urban centre in southern Catalonia.
