The Villa Romana del Moro is located north-west of Torredembarra. Actually much more than simply a villa, this is an archaeological site where the existence of two villas was uncovered.
The oldest was erected during the first century BC. Decorative and architectural vestiges from this dwelling have been preserved.
Following the destruction of this first dwelling, another villa was erected and was inhabited until the third century, when it was abandoned.
The town of Salou has several fountains that have become genuine public attractions. The first, the light fountain, was built in 1973. Many spectators come to discover it, and for good reason: its jets with many combinations of water games, music and light create a magical show.
Similarly, the cybernetic fountains, opened in 2007, produce an equally magical show.
The labyrinth fountain is also worth a look.
More than an ornament, these fountains truly immerse you in an enchanting universe.
Strolling through the streets named Ample, Baix de San Pere, Eduard Benot and Carnisseria, means immersing yourself in the history of Torredembarra. These streets are home to several Baroque buildings from the 18th century.
Visitors can also discover a host of more modern buildings dating from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Some may find it surprising that a hospital can be listed as a tourist attraction. However, this building is an example of Baroque architecture which is well worth a visit. It was founded by Father Badia in 1783 to help the poor and the sick of the town.
One of the highlights of the building is the large courtyard with its lush and exotic vegetation and the Baroque chapel.
Today, a modern building has been added this ancient structure. It is a care home for the elderly.
Take the time to go for a stroll along the Avenida Jaume I in Salou. Start from the seafront, where you will find a range of shops, selling souvenirs, ice cream, beach equipment and so on. There are also many restaurants and cafes in this area, where you can eat or drink, lulled by the sound of the waves breaking on the shore. Palm trees and fountains guide you up the avenue. This is a great spot for an evening walk at sunset, or an after dinner stroll.
