About Tarragona and Places to Visit
Tarragona’s location in Spain’s Catalonia region is ideal for exploring the Catalan sense of independence. This highly industrialized area was once inhabited by the Roman colony of Tarraco, the oldest Roman settlement on the Iberian Peninsula. In Tarragona, you can visit a park to walk across a well-preserved Roman aqueduct that still stands in the center of a landscape dominated by dense pine forests.
The park near the aqueduct has several well-manicured trails, ideal for a pleasant hike. Nearby, Tarragona’s ancient Roman Amphitheater has a panoramic view of the ocean, the view once admired by up to 15,000 spectators in the 2nd century AD. For a taste of modern Catalonian culture, there is no better place to explore than the Mercado Central de Tarragona. Here you can sit back, relax and enjoy delicious Catalan tapas and a glass of wine or shop for fresh fish, meats, cheeses and produce brought to market each day by farmers in the region. For a taste of Tarragona’s city life, Cambra de Comerç de Tarragona is a busy street filled with the sights and sounds of life in motion.
The architecture on this street is a popular attraction. Take a stroll to admire the stonework and graceful arches. The most famous architect from this region was Antoni Gaudí. During the late 19th and early 20th Century, Gaudí’s work transcended mainstream Modernism into an organic style inspired by natural forms. The nearby Casco Antiguo de Tarragona, the old section of Tarragona, is a place to explore old architecture, shops and restaurants. Photographers find a unique interplay of light and shadow in the narrow alleys off the main street. The Mediterranean light reaches down to illuminate colorful buildings and the decorative wrought-iron lanterns and gates that adorn them while everything else seems to be left to the imagination, hidden in darkness and soft shadows.
Reus Airport (LERS) is located 5 miles (8 km) from Tarragona’s city center. Empty legs and transient aircraft services to and from Tarragona are extremely popular in the region.
