The area and getting around
Located on the Costa Dorada (Golden Coast), about 60 km south of Barcelona, this beautiful beachfront city offers so much, be it you want to kick back and relax on the beaches or get active and explore the historical and natural landscape of the region.

The mild climate means you can happily submerge in the Mediterranean waters from the end of May right the way through into October.A cultural gem

It boasts a plethora of historic sights of international importance, such as its 12th century cathedral, which sits at its highest point in the historic centre, home to a fascinating collection of Catalan art. Museums are plentiful across the city, with the Archaeological Museum overlooking the glistening sea and the Necropolis Museum displaying some important Christian burial sites, just to name a few.
