2. A QUIET ROUTE THROUGH MAS DE TEIXELLS DE CAMBRILS
The excursion starts at Mas dels Teixells, to where we get on the T-314 Road of Montbrió. The route that we propose draws on the map a species of butterfly with open wings, where the body represents the Mas and the profile of the wings, the roads. The old municipal district of Dells Teixells comprised many scattered country houses, stretching along the fertile Camp de Tarragona Plain, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Llaberia and l'Argenetera mountains. The Mas dels Teixells represented the centre of this ancient fief and was annexed to the municipality of Cambrils in the mid-nineteenth century. It is now an important crossroads due to its strategic position. Thanks to this privileged enclave, this house was fortified to be defended against possible attacks. Along this route we will cross different ravines, surrounded by greenery of oaks and pines, where many animals and many birds take refuge. We will walk among vegetables fields, orange trees, carob trees, almond trees and, above all, olive trees.

The most enjoyable Cambrils
We recommend that you return to Cambrils to enjoy a good meal, as it is a locality with more than 150 varied restaurants to satisfy the most demanding palates. Considered the gastronomic capital of the Costa Daurada (Golden Coast), some of the restaurants have received awards such as Michelin Stars and awards in prestigious magazines specialized in gastronomy.
The boats return to dry land
One of the best attractions of the coastal towns is visiting the port at around 6 pm, when the fishermen decide to take their boats to the mainland after having spent the whole day at sea. An interesting, ethnographic and daily show that will not cost you a single euro.
