DISCOVER THE WONDERS OF THE COSTA DAURADA
MILLENNIAL TARRAGONA AND TRADITIONAL FESTIVALS IN PARK PLAYA BARA
We are located in a region marked by its Roman past. Tarragona was the capital of the Roman Hispania (Imperial Tarraco). Through this city you will be able to contemplate more than 2,000 years of history visiting the amphitheatre, the Roman forum, the aqueduct, the ancient rampart and some diverse art.
Our most traditional festivities come alive thanks to the fireworks powder. Among the smoke trails they appear different typical characters of the festivals like devils, giants, “cabezudos”, “sardanas” and the spectacular “castellers” with their amazing human towers.
GASTRONOMY AND ACTIVITIES IN PARK PLAYA BARA
Our Mediterranean diet is present in all coastal villages, which make a living of the sea. In their markets you can see the public auction of fish and seafood caught by their fishermen. Do not forget to try the traditional cuisine of the area as the “calçotada”, the “xatonada” or the “romescada” (fish and seafood casserole with our typical Romesco sauce).
Our characteristic weather permits diverse leisure options on our golden sand beaches: Jet-ski, Sailing, Windsurfing … If you are looking for something more relaxed you can practice sport fishing calmly on the beach. And for those who feel young, you can dance all night long in the local discos or have a good time at the large theme park Port Aventura ™.
