Celler Burgos Porta

Reviewed By FranschhoekCaracal - Franschhoek, South Africa

We visited Celler Burgos Porta, home of the Mas Sinén wines on a Sunday. The owner, Salvador, took us around the vineyards, cellar and barrel maturation and explained everything in great detail and with much enthusiasm and with many anecdotes. This was followed by a tasting of 4 of his excellent wines - big, serious wines which are typical to the DOQ.
The drive there is also spectacular, so all-in-all a great experience!

There are nice modernist buildings in the cities and even though this one is not looking amazing from outside I recommend to you to five a chance to the house and visit it inside. It's really beautiful and thanks to visit it you can realise how beautiful is the modernist art, typical from the catalan region

You can choose two beaches; the bay beach, warm and calm, or the open sea beach where with chilly water and wavy. Both Beaches are shallow and you'll feel a soft summer breeze.

Reial Monestir De Santes Creus

Reviewed By dmp22 - Thailand

We drove to this ancient monastery just after visiting Montserrat. This quiet and rarely visited location was a wonderful change of pace after fighting the crowds that morning. It is well-preserved but not overly restored, and the information provided was extremely useful. Tickets were quite reasonable, and this was our favorite of the big three monasteries nearby. The drive through the countryside was also gorgeous.

Comarca del Priorat

Reviewed By Eli B - Sydney, Australia

We hired a car to get here in 1.5 hours heading west from Barcelona to a series of Valleys surrounded by the Holy Mountain Ranges, about 30 km from the Med at Tarragona, as the crow flies. From here the clouds roll in over the hillsrom the sea, occasionally drenching the stony ground, which is covered in little fingernail-like stones and flat broken tiles that make up the local soil. The vines here, old growth, garnache, carinena and cab-sav... cling to the steep hills sucking the very essence of stone from the soil, reflecting back in wines so rich they are the most sought after drops in the world.
Here lies the reason for making the pilgrimage... that and the sheer beauty of the remote villages like Falset and El Masroiy rising from the hilltops, colourful sun-drenched, versions of San Giminiano in Tuscany.
Because of the narrow winding roads, tourist buses are limited in disgorging their minions to the coast, thus allowing us to enjoy this superb location. Give me this rural atmosphere, sheer beauty of the country, for here is the pull of food, wine and the relative remoteness that draws us back here time & again where everything grown has a place in your stomach... and your heart.

Pont del Diable

Reviewed By Bozeman-Dublin - Dublin, Ireland

We sort of stumbled on this magnificent Roman Aqueduct by accident while driving to Tarragona from Barcelona. It's right by the motorway and as we rounded a bend and it came into view our eyes nearly fell out of our heads with amazement.
It's absolutely massive and extraordinarily well preserved. There is parking right by it and a path that leads you right up to and on to it.
It dates all the way back to the 1st century and is just a wonderful thing to see. The best compliment I can pay it is that it is right up there with Segovia as one of the finest Aqueducts I have seen.
A fantastic surprise. Only a few kilometres, 4 or 5 maybe, from Tarragona and absolutely well worth a visit. If you don't have a car we saw public buses drop off and pick up here but I don't remember the bus number.

Catedral Basilica Metropolitana Primada de Tarragona

The Cathedral is dedicated to St Thecla and is erected at the top of the Acropolis or hill of the ancient city. Its construction began in the year 1171 and it was consecrated on 4 July 1331. Its foundations and later architectural development are located on the remains of an ancient Roman construction begun in the second quarter of the 1st century bc. and completed at the beginning of the Vespasian Empire (69-79 AD). The Cathedral is gothic in style. Its floor plan is in the form of a Latin cross, with three naves each with their own apses and transept. The head is of Romanesque tradition with half-point arches supporting the extension of the stone wall and pilasters following the new constructive techniques of the Gothic movement.

Reviewed By Bozeman-Dublin - Dublin, Ireland

This is a beautiful Cathedral in the heart of the equally beautiful town of Tarragona. The church is built in earlier Roman ruins and dates back to the 14th century. It has a wonderful charm and serenity with three huge naves and an ornate dome.
Entrance is very cheap , less than €5, can't remember exactly but very cheap. There is a very good audio guide available that tells you a lot about the building, the architecture and the iconography.
The Cathedral has a museum and treasury that are well worth taking in too.
Such a beautiful place, we really enjoyed our visit.

Playa El Torn Naturist Beach

Reviewed By Kay R - Dunstable, United Kingdom

We have just spent two weeks staying very close to this beach. Loved it last year and had to return. Lazy days laying on gorgeous clean soft sand, clear water and I also got to swim with the fish again. After a good swim there is a shower on the beach, a chance to rinse off before grabbing a beer and something to eat in the shade of the lovely decked out beach bar
But one extra treat I thought I would never see was a tornado touching down about a mile out at sea and I managed to get a photo or two.
I have always said once I have been to a place I would prefer to go somewhere else, but this place is worth another visit, I am sure we will go back again.just to see what other attractions crop up. Amazing!
