Tarragona and Around

Tarragona is a provincial capital in southern Catalonia, some 100 km down the coast from Barcelona. The history of the town goes back to Roman times, and there are plentiful of Roman remains as well an old town. I was a bit out of luck: I arrived around noon on Sunday when most of the sights close at three o'clock, something I did not discover until later. And on Mondays they are not open at all. This was not the end of the world: the city has a nice atmopshere, and it's anything but dull in Tarragona. I took the occasion to go outside the town for excursion to the small town of Montblanc and the monastery of Poblet.
