It's ideal for tranquil exploration of the museums and archaeological sites, followed by excellent Catalan cuisine in a local restaurant. To make the most of a trip to this historic corner of Spain, booking Tarragona hotels at Hotels.com allows visitors to find the accommodation that meets their requirements and their budget. Tarragona hotel rooms are available across the city, close to the major sights, or by the sea front.Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Tarragona

The ancient Carthaginian and Roman city of Tarraco is still famous for its classical ruins. Highlights include the well-preserved amphitheatre right by the coast, with spectacular sea views, the Forum, with substantial ruins next to the town market, and the museum with a wealth of relics and informative displays. Further out from the centre are the Necropolis, with pagan and Christian tombs, and the impressive aqueduct, a 4km bus ride from town. The walled upper part of Tarragona includes an atmospheric medieval quarter, and a variety of cafes and restaurants. Locals and tourists alike head towards the cafes and eateries on the Placa de la Font, with its outdoor terraces. The suburb of Serrallo, a short stroll away along the harbour front, offers a selection of upscale fish restaurants. Visitors looking to mix sightseeing with a spot of sunbathing will find excellent beaches at Platja del Miracle, Arrabassada and Platja Llarga.

What's Tarragona Like?

Tarragona is in Catalonia so it's quite likely that locals will speak Catalan, although your Spanish phrases will be understood. "Good afternoon" in Catalan is "bona tarda" and should win a few friends in cafes. Fish dishes are the speciality in Tarragona, and locals usually accompany them with romesco sauce, made from peppers, garlic, olive oil and almonds. In Tarragona, the local folklore includes a long-established tradition of building human towers, with four rival groups competing to create the most impressive stacks of people. It's a custom that's probably easier to watch rather than to join in. The expertise of Hotels.com offers visitors a wealth of information to search for their ideal Tarragona hotels online, using the website's handy combination of detailed room descriptions, photos and certified reviews from past guests. Booking in advance at Hotels.com ensures that travellers find the best value Tarragona rooms for their holiday.
