In Tarragona, your event will make history.
Standing on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Tarragona is the southernmost capital in Catalonia and less than 100 kilometres from Barcelona. Its outstanding position means it enjoys a climate of hot summers and mild winters.
The city is a legacy of its past – voted a World Heritage Site three times by UNESCO: for its monumental remains, its Mediterranean gastronomy and its spectacular Castells, or human tower builders.
Stunning monuments a wonderful climate and modern infrastructures have all made Tarragona an exceptional destination for business travel, congresses and events, which is complemented by a wide range of fine hotels and restaurants.
All these attractions are supported by excellent connections which make Tarragona a leading cultural, tourist and leisure destination.
Gladiators, castells, sea, gastronomy of Ancient Rome, golf… We are talking about Tarragona, whose past is very present in any event. Under the motto ‘Your event will make history’, the city proposes using its historic heritage for a series of initiatives that bring all the flavour of the past to the event. Compact and convenient, most venues for events are found in a small area near the Palau and the Seminari, and 10 minutes from the main hotels; with warm temperatures all year round, close to the PortAventura attraction park with its convention centre and the triple ‘U’ of Unesco (the city itself, the castells and the Mediterranean diet are all World Heritage),
The streets of Tarragona are a huge open-air museum: the circus, amphitheatre, necropolis and aqueduct were all declared World Heritage sites by UNESCO, although Roman traces are also found in the most unsuspected places, such as bars or the Palacio de Congresos with its natural stone walls. In addition, entertainment can be provided with gladiator battles, teambuildings of castellers (humantowers), visits to the nearby wineries of the Priorat region or PortAventura, or with the practice of water sports in the nearby Costa Daurada.
