Tarragona holidays

If squeezing in the sights is just as important as soaking up the sun, the Catalan city of Tarragona will be right up your street. It’s a palm-lined port town where the roll-call of Roman ruins is endless and the café culture is all too tempting. Throw in some knockout beaches too, and what more could you ask for?

A blast from the past

The city’s ancient amphitheatre, circus and necropolis are all up there with the best of them. Dating back to the 2nd century, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were on the set of Gladiator when you step into Tarragona Amphitheatre. In fact, you might catch a Roman re-enactment if you’re lucky. And don’t miss the huge Gothic cathedral and the many museums.

Wow, what a view

For eye-popping snaps you can’t wait to show off, make sure you swing by the Balcony of the Mediterranean. The ornate iron railings along this elevated viewing platform frame the most wonderful sea vistas.

Fishy dishes

Think port, think seafood. Paella’s a classic we know and love, but try the local bluefish or arròs negre – squid ink rice – for something a little more regional. Head to the fisherman’s district of el Serrallo for the best choice and bags of atmosphere.
