Old world ambience in Spain’s sun drenched Catalonia region.
BEST TIME TO VISIT
To make the most of your yachting adventure, the summertime months of June to August provide picture perfect days of mid to high 20°Cs. With limitless opportunities to take a dip in the ocean, sun seekers are advised to consider a summer itinerary.
Delaying your trip to September or October, or visiting early in May will also ensure you experience moderate temperatures from the low to mid 20°Cs. Off-season tours provide the added benefit of avoiding the bulk of the summer tourists, ideal for sightseeing.
Activities & Experiences
Few cities contain as many layers of history as Tarragona. The alleyways themselves hail from mediaeval times, the cobblestone streets are reminiscent of a fairy tale, and UNESCO-listed Roman ruins lie waiting to be discovered. Your trip is yours to plan as you please, however we highly recommend these unique experiences for your private yacht charter in Tarragona:
Cathedral of Tarragona
Built on the site of a 10th century Moorish mosque, this 12th century Roman Catholic cathedral is a stunning example of construction during the transition from Romanesque to Gothic construction styles. Declared to be a national monument in 1905, this building is home to intricate stonework and stained glass windows, including the famous 15th century reredos by Pere Johan.
Offering a glimpse into 15th century affluent living, the palace of Casa Castellarnau was built for an aristocratic family who resided here well into the 19th century. The remarkably well preserved attraction contains beautiful decor, furniture and architecture that will make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time. Open to the public only by advanced reservation, you can be sure to experience a personalised tour.
The Roman Amphitheatre
History buffs will love exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is also one of the most important archaeological sites in Spain. Capable of holding up to 14,000 patrons, this amphitheatre once hosted spectacular gladiator games and various public entertainment. Dating back to the reign of Emperor Augustus in the second century AD and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea from a picturesque hillside, this attraction is breathtaking in more ways than one.
The National Archaeological Museum of Tarragona
Soak up one of Spain's best collections of ancient Roman art at the National Archaeological Museum of Tarragona. Many mediums of art are on display, including pottery, sarcophagi and mosaics, many sourced from local historical sites. Marvel at the numerous marble statues, and be sure to stop at the Medusa Mosaic, and the intricate Mosaic of the Fish which depicts almost 50 sea creatures that can be found locally.
El Milagro Beach
For a more relaxed afternoon, swing by the popular El Milagro beach. Found walking distance from many key attractions, this sandy shore has substantial public facilities and space for outdoor sports. Stretching for almost a full kilometre, there’s plenty of room for everyone.
Visit the quaint fishing village that birthed Tarragona as we now know it. Oozing old world charm, the restaurants in this friendly neighbourhood source their fish daily from the local fish market. Some of the best seafood dishes in Spain can be found here, keep your eye out for Pataco, a local hearty stew that will have you coming back for seconds.
