Visit Tarragona, it’s a gorgeous city, an hour from Barcelona by train or car, and only a few minutes away from Reus Airport (7km). The city was once the capital of the Roman Empire in Spain. Today Tarragona is a place where history and culture are crowned with Mediterranean blue skies, blessed with beautiful beaches and complemented by an abundance of fine wine and cuisine.
Walking around the area where you can see the amphitheatre, the views are absolutely amazing, as the amphitheatre is right by the sea. There’s something both odd and awesome about seeing it. Behind you are parts of Tarraco, which is one of Catalonia’s 9 wonders of UNESCO sites and heritage.Tarraco is an impressive sight from many places, as are the views from the Mediterranean Balcony (Balcó del Mediterrani). Tarragona has tangible history that palpitates around you, it has modernist architecture, a magnificent cathedral and Ramblas. In the Rambla Nova you’ll find some unique Modernist buildings. The province of Tarragona is also home to a second of the 9 wonders of UNESCO sites and heritage - the Poblet Monastery.
