We visited Tarragona on a Sunday during our Barcelona visit. It was not a very nice day. Whilst being warm, there was a light fog and drizzle which cleared up later. The light was not good for photography so there are not many shots of the city.
There were not many people about and almost all shops and cafes were closed. We were very impressed with the sculptures and fountains in La Rambla, the main street. We also liked the Roman remains of an amphitheatre and subsequent church. We would have liked to have got closer but the remains are fenced off and were locked that day.
The drive along the coast from our campsite at the Three Estrellas to Tarragona was interesting and scenic. There are many tunnels through the foothills and the road engineers did a very good job. Quite close to Tarragona is the the well preserved remains of a very large Roman aquaduct. If you are staying in Barcelona for a while, we thouroughly recommend a trip to Tarragona.
