A Truly Beautiful Place
Catalonia is a small autonomous state measuring 12,000 sq. miles and is considered to be the gateway between Iberia and Europe.The Catalan people take special pride in their unique identity. They have their own language, a rich economy, thriving culture, and a gastronomy which the rest of Spain may rightly envy.
The perfect place to experience a memorable country family holiday in a lesser known part of Spain. From the golden coast-line Costa Dorada, Prades Mountains with endless routes for cycling and walking, rock faces to challenge, numerous historic sites like Roman ruins of Tarraco Medieval towns like Montblanc or quiet village museums with fossils from the local stone quarries.
The southernmost state of the 4 Catalonian provinces offers huge contrasts in scenery, different types of agriculture, gastronomy, entertainment, beaches, architecture and culture - far more in fact than any of its neighbouring provinces. Tarragona has a huge selection of family country holidays both budget and selective to suit all tastes.
From the spectacular beaches of the Costa Daurada, to the unspoilt areas of great natural beauty of the interior, from the most famous Wine region of Priorat with stunning hill and rock climbs, to the planes of Tarragones and Baix Camp full of Gaudi Modernist architecture.
Something for every taste; Port Aventura close by for the big kids, Roman relics, Monasteries and Modernist architecture for the historians, mountains for the fit and brave, or the relatively spoilt beaches once away from the main tourist resorts for total relaxation.
