Tarragona is Catalonia’s southernmost capital city, less than 100 kms away from Barcelona. Its privileged location affords it a temperate and mild climate year-round. Tarragona was home to Emperor Augustus. The declaration of its archaeological Roman ruins as UNESCO World Heritage is proof of this legacy. Its monuments, location and climate make Tarragona an exceptional destination, one where visitors can play golf or tennis, go horseback riding or sailing...

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.
