December 25, we wish you a Merry Christmas! If you see a child in the cradle this will mean that the manger is already installed and all the shepherds can go to worship the child. At Christmas there are many towns and cities that represent the birth of Jesus. But they are all different: there are very special mangers, staged with men and women of flesh and blood, performed in abandoned villages, in historic farms, enviable rural spaces ... In this TripIdea we selected some of the most important cribs of the Costa Daurada (Golden Coast). So, take the leather pouch, and come, to the stable!

Castell de TamaritCastell de Tamarit
ALTAFULLA
TORREDEMBARRA

Start the walk on the beach of Altafulla, and in a southerly direction, ON the incomparable promenade Botigues del Mar promenade, one of the untouched jewels of the Costa Daurada (Golden Coast). The white houses next to the sand of this neighborhood of Altafulla stay anchored in time and turn the walk into a return to the coast of our grandparents. The quarter was built for merchants to store merchandise and fishermen, nautical equipment and nets. When the tour ends, you may have to take off your shoes to walk the sand until you reach the first castle on the way, Tamarit Castle.

You have to go all the way aroundthe building and the old Vila Closa de Tamarit to have a one hundred percent satisfactory view. Follow the very rocky camino de ronda, The Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance styles are combined in this 12th century castle, which protected the town from pirate invasions during the Middle Ages. Nothing suggests that a century ago it was almost in ruins and abandoned. Today it is majestically exhibited after the American philanthropist Charles Deering and the Catalan painter Ramon Casas rehabilitated it from top to bottom. It is privately owned and usually can not be entered. But if you're curious, you have two options. You can enter some Sundays during the church mass or you can get married and have a big party and rent the whole castle to make a treat more than sounded. You choose!

At the foot of Tamarit Castle, if you can withstand the cold, you can soak in the beautiful Cala Jovera – it is always a better idea to do this in the summer. It is one of the most unique corners of Costa Daurada (Golden Coast) and offers a picture postcard.

Pont del DiablePont del Diable
TARRAGONA

Be careful where you put your feet! In the forest, at night, it is difficult to walk and be oriented, and you have to pay close attention to the directions of the guide. Even more so if you are so close to a monument that hides as many legends as the el Pont del Diable, a Roman aqueduct located on the Costa Daurada (Golden Coast) that is also called Les Ferreres. One of the best activities to visit the whole ecohistórico are the excursions organized on full moon nights. The enigmatic light emanating from the most admired lunar phase and the stillness and silence of this environment will make you discover again a monument that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The route will take you through the nearby woods and romantic gardens of the Puig and Valls brothers. If you are attentive, you will see nocturnal birds such as the owl and the brown goatsucker, two birds difficult to see in the middle of the night. or you will hear among the trees the sounds of owl or the European kestrel. If you want ti undertake a guided tour with the children, go ahead. Just tell them to adapt the itinerary to the little ones.
