Last weekend, I was on a viaje with the program to Tarragona – a little town South of Barcelona. This is one of the oldest town in Spain and it will amaze you with a rich history dated hundreds of years before Christ. Apart from the charm of valleys and crystal clear playa, it struck me how forward – thinking the Romans were. Not only were they able to create buildings that last thousands of years, the designs were also timeless. It makes me rethink of human capability, and to question myself what can I do to leave a legacy.
The town, however, is very lively and cute. It is very small (or at least the center) and only took us 40 minutes or so to walk around the area. Stores here echar siestar from around 1.30-2pm, much earlier than in Barcelona, so make sure you grab that Gelats or baguette before then. Overall, this is a nice place for a day trip if you grow a little bit bored of Barcelona (which I highly doubt) – and the town is one and a half hour drive from the ciudad.
