Seven reasons for choosing Tarragona

Tarragona is located in one of the best geographical areas in the world, on the shores of the Mediterranean, and is blessed with a climate that is mild in winter and pleasant in summer. These characteristics have made it one of the main tourist destinations in Spain. This privileged location has also helped to promote the development of a strong industrial sector and a first-class communications infrastructure linking Tarragona with the major cities of Spain and the European Union.

Tarragona is just one hour by train or freeway from Barcelona and two-and-a-half hours by high-speed train from Madrid. The airport of Reus, just 10 km (6.2 miles) from Tarragona, has international flights to major European cities.
