Cruise tο Tarragona !

Tarragona Cruise Port Costa Daurada has set itself up in the world of cruises as a Mediterranean destination. The region of Catalonia known as the Costa Daurada, and its capital, Tarragona, located about 100 km south of Barcelona, will undoubtedly prove to be one of the cruise destinations to watch closely in coming years.

Tarragona enjoys the international recognition of Universal Exceptional Value Site by UNESCO, in which is included the collection of archaeological remains of the old Roman Tarraco; and the medieval monastery of Poblet as World Heritage Site.

Also, the Human Towers; one of the most genuine and original cultural manifestations in Europe, which is designated Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

Tarragona Cruise Port is also synonymous of Gaudi. In Reus, Gaudi's native city, we still can see the places this genius frequented, and which are related to his life.

It's worth highlighting the extensive range of wine producers in the area, with 5 denominations of origin of wine, including one as eminent as the Priorat.

Furthermore, this destination has a full cultural and leisure offer, not forgetting that it can offer 7 golf courses which make Tarragona Cruise Port an excellent choice for golf lovers.

Tarragona offers numerous cultural and natural attractions, which translate into an excellent variety of possible excursions around the port, allowing visitors to experience the city through its history, its traditional culture, the essence of its cuisine and its local businesses.

Well connected with Europe and the rest of Spain, it has two international airports, one in Reus, only 10 minutes away, and the other in Barcelona, to which it connects directly through motorway AP2 in only 50 minutes.
