Located on the sparkling coast of Catalonia, Tarragona is a historical wonderland filled with Roman ruins, a magnificent amphitheatre, museums, and old-town charm. Its rich offering of attractions includes the Tarraco Archaeological Site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the lively Rambla Nova, the city's main promenade.

Tarragona's Beaches

With a coastline stretching for an impressive 15 kilometres, Tarragona is home to beautiful golden beaches that are perfect for basking under the Mediterranean sun. Playa del Milagro, a central beach, is easily accessible, while the secluded Cala Fonda requires a more adventurous drive.

Car Hire and Driving Advice

Experiencing Tarragona with a rental car allows you to travel at your own pace, relishing everything from the beautiful beaches to the winding country roads. The city's location on the Costa Dorada makes it a prime starting point for exploring the rest of Catalonia. Drive at a reasonable speed, though, as the beautiful scenery can be distracting!

Driving on the Right Unlike in the UK, Spanish traffic drives on the right-hand side of the road; the driver's seat and controls are on the left-hand side of the vehicle.
Speed Limits Urban areas: 50 km/h; non-urban roads: 90 km/h; dual carriageways and motorways: 120 km/h.
Parking The Blue Zone (Zona Azul) is a chargeable parking zone in central Tarragona, operating from Monday to Saturday. Outside of this area, parking is generally free.

Local Customs

Spanish people value their siestas - a mid-afternoon break that can often see shops closing from around 2 pm until 5 pm, so plan your travels well. When ordering a coffee, bear in mind that a 'cafe solo' is their version of an espresso. Evening meals are typically eaten late, around 9-10 pm.

Surroundings Worth Exploring

There's plenty to discover outside Tarragona. The celebrated Cistercian Route (Ruta del Cister) is an enriching journey to three monasteries, namely Poblet, Santes Creus and Vallbona de les Monges. Don't miss the charming town of Sitges, famed for its Film Festival and Carnival.


Tarragona enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Don't forget to pack your sun cream!


The currency in Spain is the Euro (€), not the pound sterling (£). Remember to exchange some currency before beginning your journey or withdraw from local ATMs.

Experiencing Tarragona and Beyond

Renting a car in Tarragona not only provides convenience but also opens up a multitude of possibilities for your travel adventures. From exploring the ancient city's many sights, overcoming language barriers, to discovering off-the-beaten-track destinations - Tarragona is yours to explore. Enjoy your journey!
