Your guide to Tarragona holidays
Culture and history is what attracts tourists to holidays in Tarragona. You can’t walk down a street without pausing to admire a monument or an ancient building. The Roman Amphitheatre is one of the most famous attractions here and is just a short walk away from the beach. Built in the 2nd century, this oval construction was used for fights between gladiators and wild animals. The structure itself is built from the underlying bedrock and can hold up to 14,000 spectators. A truly breath-taking piece of architecture which will make for an unforgettable experience.
The cathedral and diocesan museum was constructed in the 12th century and is one of the oldest buildings in the town. Inside you can find exquisite collections of both modern religious and medieval art. The variety of attractions dotting the streets of Tarragona are worth a visit and most charge a small fee or offer free admission for tourists.
Holidays in Tarragona are renowned for their choice of golden beaches. The area itself Costa Darauda even means ‘golden beaches’ in Catalan! There are a number of beaches to choose from depending on what you like. Some offer a more lively atmosphere with plenty of tourists and beach bars to cool off in with an icy beverage. Or you can escape the hustle and bustle and slip off to more secluded areas to relax and unwind. Platja Savinosa is a beach located just a couple of miles outside of Tarragona. Here you can spend the day paddling in the crystal waters of the Med whilst soaking up the rays on the soft white sand. The beach bar here offers some great food, so call in for a pit stop to break up the day. Platja de L’arrabassada offers a clean, idyllic environment for budding beachgoers and is around 3 kilometres from Tarragona. There are on site showers to rinse off those pesky grains of sand and a choice of cafes if you fancy a bite to eat.
