Tarragona is a wonderful destination to add to any Mediterranean cruise itinerary. Open to the sea, it boasts 14 kilometres of coastline and enjoys a climate with excellent temperatures. Its location on the shores of the Mediterranean, on the Costa Daurada, with its fine beaches and warm waters, as well as its leisure centres, historical tradition and artistic heritage, make it a top tourist attraction.
Founded in the 3rd century BC under the name of Tarraco, it boasts an important seaport, our Port of Tarragona. The Romans made it the capital of the province of Tarragona, which is why it still has outstanding archaeological remains from that era that have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
