AltafullaSpain

Sea, mountains, Roman ruins, medieval walls... Altafulla truly has it all to make sure your holiday is a success.

Altafulla is a sun-kissed town in the province of Tarragona, bathed by the Mediterranean sea. Its strategic location means it’s home to a series of natural attractions that will leave you breathless. You can start by visiting the mouth of the River Gaià, a nature reserve that includes a group of small wetland areas. Be sure to bring your binoculars, as you’ll have the chance to spot numerous migratory birds.

If birdwatching isn’t your thing, not to worry, cheap trips to Altafulla have a lot more than that to offer. You can relax on the stunning Altafulla beach, with fine golden sand and warm waters. Since you're here, why not head over to see Carrer Botigues de Mar, where you’ll see a set of old fishing warehouses from the 18th century that have gradually been converted into homes and summer getaways.

Continue heading northwards and you’ll come across Plaça del Pou, the nerve centre of Altafulla. It is presided over by the porticoed town hall building, and surrounded by several stately homes. Be sure to check out the remains of the old medieval wall surrounding the city that you can still see to this day. If you're still up for some adventure, head over to Villa dels Munts, a Roman villa on a small hill with magical ruins dating back to the 1st century.

Montserrat d’Altafulla castle is slightly more modern. Its current structure dates back to the 17th century and is preserved in wonderful condition. It’s privately owned, but can be visited when the town hall holds public events there, such as chamber music concerts. Check out the schedule to make sure you get the full Altafulla experience!

When you want to rest in a quiet spot, visit the parish church of Sant Martí, where you can drink in the tranquillity. It was built between 1701 and 1705, and its three-nave structure with Latin-cross floor plan is sure to delight visitors. Don’t miss the chapels inside or the crypt.

Enjoy your unforgettable trip to Altafulla!
