Tarragona: History, culture and sunshine

The Port and the City of Tarragona are firmly committed to welcoming cruise ships and passengers. Tarragona, heir of the ancient Imperial Tarraco, is a lively city where culture and history are present on all of its streets.

Its impressive archaeological legacy from the Roman era acknowledged by UNESCO as WorldHeritage, together with its medieval past and its modernism works, offer its visitors the opportunity to enjoy a passionate travel through time.

From the artistic point of view, there are not many places that have such a large number of monuments and tourist attractions concentrated in such a small area as Tarragona.

Iberian civilisation remains are plentiful, as well as multiple Roman vestiges, especially in Tarragona city. Notable landmarks are the Roman Amphitheatre in Tarragona and the Cistercian monastery in Poblet, just to mention some examples. Located on Spain's Mediterranean coast, in the heart of the Costa Daurada, Tarragona is only 100km away from Barcelona. Its privileged location results in a mild year-round climate.

The beauty and quality of its golden sandy beaches, its genuine landscapes, its mild weather, the kindness of its inhabitants, a significant commercial offer through the large variety of shops and excellent gastronomy make it one of the most privileged destinations of the Mediterranean coast.

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 45 minutes.
