The cuisine of the Costa Daurada (Golden Coast) is nurtured by the sea and the products of the land. It has very tasty dishes and wines with denomination of origin. The wild boar 'civet', the 'xató', the noodles 'rossejat' and of course the 'calçots' are dishes that speak of the identity of these lands and the way of living of its inhabitants.
If you sit in front of one of these traditional dishes, you can already say that you have tried the work, the culture and the vital attitude of these regions. You will find them in the cities and towns of all the geography of Tarragona according to the time of the year. In addition, the wines of the different Tarragona DO will complete the meal. And do not forget one of the most appreciated local products, nuts.
If you are looking for a first class gastronomic experience, you have dozens of excellent restoration professionals who will make you enjoy yourself while you eat. Cambrils also has two of the best chefs of this country. They are only separated by a few hundred meters and both have been recognized with a Michelin star. Can Bosch and El Rincón de Diego, each with its gastronomic offer, are the best tribute to the palate, which you can not miss if you visit the Costa Daurada (Golden Coast).
In this TripIdea we propose in a just a single day to climb to the highest point of Tarragona and go down to the deepest place of the city. First you will see everything from the perspective offered by the bell tower of the cathedral and then you will discover the entrails of a hidden city underground that very little have been lucky to visit.
and enjoy the show! As you look at it with the eyes of visitors, the parents of children who climb to the top of the human 'castells' spend an endless momento of anxiety. When the person in charge of the group gives the signal, the "acotxador" – the penultimate to climb to the human tower- and the "enxaneta " – the child that crowns the construction - have to be sharpen their wits to crown the "castell", climbing
among legs and arms. When they reach the top, maybe 7 or 8 meters from the ground, the parents have eaten their nails and do not want to look any longer.
Living the Tarragona Human Towers Contest from the stands, close to the protagonists, but with a privileged view, is a real luxury. In 2010 the 'castells' were designated Intangible Cultural Heritage of Mankind and for the pride of the lands of Tarragona and Costa Daurada (Golden Coast),the origin of this tradition is in the city of Valls.
The Contest is ceklebrated avery two years and brings together the best 'colles castelleres' of the season of all Catalonia. It is the contest of reference of the calendar in which the towers are scored and one colla – group – becomes the winner. The Castellers of Vilafranca, Colla Vella de Valls, Colla Jove de Taragona and the Minyons of Terrassa have competed in the last editions, which have always ended with the victory of Vilafranca. And every year there are new castells and more challenges are overcome.
Have you ever climbed a train that does not lift two feet off the ground? In the Misericordia Railway Park in Reus this is possible! The stationmaster hurries you up. The ticket-taker marks your tickets. The machine engineer reviews all the wagons to check that everyone is well seated. There are parents who have to bend their legs so much that their knees almost touch their face. On the miniature train both children and adults are welcome. The convoy is about to start and you hear the whistle: Beeeeep! We started the trip!
A group of railroads nerds of Reus premiered this circuit in 2003 with 300 track meters very near the Misericordia Sanctuary. Since then the passengers, especially the smallest, have not stopped enjoying this short train journey. It's a 3 minute stroll through the park, but who says it can not be repeated? The initiative of the Asociación de Amigos del Ferrocarril de Reus is a good excuse to approach the garden area of this Railway Park, and with a bit of luck you will also enjoy the myriad of train models and railway machinery that are exhibited.
Take a deep breath, close your eyes and feel the bubbles running down your spine. You are submerged in the water up to the chin, lying down, with your mind gone blank, and now the bubbling tickles you in the cervical, in the soles of the feet, in the calf muscles ... And in the buttocks you notice a stream of water that makes you move the muscles at a a free and relaxing rhythm that you can not control. You are in Aquum, the spa and wellness center of La Pineda, in Vila-Seca, but you would say that you are in paradise.

The spectacular facilities of this wellness club offer inexhaustible options for the clock to slow down, and devote hours to the most absolute pleasure. Have you ever breathed under an oxygen therapy scuba? Have you tried the therapeutic effects of wine baths? And no, do not worry, children will not get bored. At the children's spa, suitable for 5 to 11 year olds, they will be more than entertaining.
