With great resorts and towns on your doorstep, where will you explore in your rental car?
Salou is home to many beautiful beaches and on its outskirts is Universal's Port Aventura Theme Park, which is one of the largest in Spain. This is an ideal place to visit if you are travelling as a family and Cambrils is a lovely place to visit for its famous harbour and old defence tower.
The resort of Tarragona is a must if you are coming to this region. The archaeological remains here are a World Heritage Site, making this a great place for those interested in Roman history. The number of restaurants means that it is also an ideal place to become acquainted with the local cuisine, including the famous Catalan fish stew.
Barcelona is only about an hour's drive north of Reus so is very accessible if you have hired a car. It has everything you would expect of a major city, including museums, churches, restaurants, shopping and other tourist attractions. In addition, just outside Barcelona is the Montserrat Monastery situated on the mountain of Montserrat overlooking the city. It is well worth a visit and is an important religious retreat for the people of Catalonia.
