Holiday Tarragona and the Costa Daurada
Get a cheap holiday deal to Tarragona and explore the city's living history at its archaeological sites: stroll along the old walls, visit the Amphitheatre, the scene of gladiator fights and public executions in times past, and get up close to the Praetorium and Roman circus, which feature among the best conserved in the Western world. Choose one of the many Tarragona holiday deals and envisage the splendour of what was once the capital of the Roman province Hispania Citerior by visiting the model of Tarraco in the Provincial Forum, located in Plaça del Pallol. Take the chance to admire the Cathedral, dedicated to Tarragona's patron saint Santa Tecla and renowned for its impressive entrance and rose window.
The Costa Daurada (literally, the Gold Coast) extends along the coastline of the province of Tarragona, from Calafell to the Ebro river delta. It holds numerous well-guarded secrets: in the charming fishing village of Ametlla de Mar, take a dip on the unspoilt beaches of Santes Creus and Torrent del Pi. Visit the municipality of Sant Carles de la Rapita and stroll along its pleasant promenade; if the day is right, head to the viewpoint of La Guardiola to contemplate the views over the River Ebro delta and the coast.
One of the most emblematic cultural activities of the region is the castellers, human towers several storeys high that have been recognised on UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list. Book your flight + hotel to Tarragona and the Costa Daurada and witness the performance by a colla castellera and the rhythm of the gralla for yourself.
Tarragona's unbeatable location is also reflected in its culinary tradition, where both meat and fish take pride of place; romesco, the region's typical sauce, usually accompanies all grilled dishes. Another must-see, must-do activity is the calçotades, at which calçots, sweet spring onions typical from the area, are roasted and eaten directly without cutlery.
