Do you love the sea, but do not want to roll on the beach every day? Would you like to know interesting places? Then take a holiday on the Spanish coast of Costa Daurada, which lies in the southern part of Catalonia. Here you will find the Roman and medieval Tarragon, which lies directly by the sea and a number of landmarks located inland. You will be surprised by the breathtaking landscape with a very fast changing nature, when you will see a not very interesting plain that turns into hills and deciduous forests.
From the sights you can visit the Romanesque church of St. Michael. You will enjoy the center of the town, which forms the Major Square, surrounded by Gothic palaces. The Gothic Church of Our Lady is a few steps from the square. 50 km from the coast is a monastery founded in 1153, which rises in the foothills of the Serra de Prades.
The village of Siurana de Prades has 21 inhabitants. It is a very popular place among climbers. Siurana and the Serra de Montsant mountains with their vertical and slightly overhanging walls are a complete paradise for climbers. The most famous person in this field is Toni Arbones, Mr. Climber, as many Czech climbers have praised him, who also runs a camp here.
From the sea it is only 10 km to Reus, where the architect Antoni Gaudi was born, whose very original projects are famous not only in Barcelona. Reus itself offers more than sixty Art Nouveau buildings. Renting a car is definitely worth it because there are plenty of places to visit. There is a local bus service to Reus.
All resorts on the Costa Daurada have their own information centers, where you can find various brochures, maps and plans. You can read not only about cultural monuments, but also when a cultural event takes place. From Prague you can get here by air. you get at bargain prices. There are direct buses to the resorts from the airport.
