The old town of Tarragona is a traffic free heaven. The cobbled streets are a joy to walk amongst the small shops, alleys and passages.

Tarragona Alta is vertebrated around the beautiful Carrer Major, but I advise to stroll along the nearby streets and passages not so contaminated by tourist shops pressure. You will find charming corners which remind middle age and even roman tradition

The old section of Tarragona is a rabbit's warren of small twisting streets set on the side of h hill. Capped by the Basilica. Thankfully a pedestrian only area. Good strolling on the steep streets and not too much to do or see.

Tarragona is a gorgeous town and the historic old centre is it's best facet. Beautifully located by the sea with fantastically well preserved Roman Walls and an amphitheatre, the old town has a wonderful charm. Lovely skinny, winding streets with great tapas bars and quaint...More
