Tarragona : Michelin's recommendations
The bright and welcoming coastal city of Tarragona is the capital of the Costa Dorada and was listed in 2000 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due its archaeological and architectural sights of interest. With its Roman monuments, medieval quarter and cathedral, Tarragona is a fascinating city to visit. It also boasts fine sandy beaches and the delightful El Serrallo district, home to the city’s best fish restaurants. It’s worth heading to the port area, which has a lively atmosphere at night.
