Tarragona, Spain - Balcony of the Mediterranean



While we're impatiently waiting for our upcoming trips for this year, we decided to make the waiting less boring and go for a quick weekend escape and visit Tarragona, only 1 hour by train from Barcelona. I've been in Tarragona a couple of times before and I always get enchanted by this Spanish beauty that feels like mini Rome looking over the Mediterranean. 
     What used to be Tarraco in ancient Roman times and one of the most important Roman settlements on the Iberian Peninsula, nowadays is a buzzing city that at the same time feels very calming. A perfect mix of ancient Roman monuments and remains, narrow colorful streets and city's position above the sea will enchant even the pickiest traveler. 
     Today I'm going to show you my favorite part, a huge open promenade above the sea, known as the Balcony of the Mediterranean. You can see the port of Tarragona, a beach called Miracle and Roman amphitheatre snuggled between Mediterranean greenery and vast blue horizon. An urban legends says that if you touch the iron fence, it will bring you luck. Who knows... ;)

...Stay tuned for part 2...

Mientras estamos esperando que empiecen los viajes que hemos planeado para este año, decidimos hacer la espera más divertida y pasar un finde en Tarragona. Me encantan esos planes que no exigen mucha preparación. Se trata de tan solo coger un tren y una hora después aparecer en un entorno diferente.
     Para mí Tarragona es como mini Roma del Mediterráneo. En la época romana, Tarragona se llamaba Tarraco y fue uno de los sitios más importantes de la península ibérica. Hoy en día es una ciudad donde el espiritú cosmopolita y la paz de pueblos pequeños viven en la harmonía. La oferta turísitica de Tarragona es muy amplia: destacan sus monumentos y ruinas de la época romana, el laberinto de los callejones coloridos del casco antiguo y una posición espectacular sobre el mar.  
     Hoy os quería esnseñar mi parte favorita de la cuidad, un paseo amplio al lado del mar conocido como el Balcón del Mediterráneo. Por una parte se ve el puerto de Tarragona y por otra las rocas que rodean la playa del Miracle. En el medio se encuentra la joya de la ciudad, el anfitatro romano situado entre las palmeras y el horizonte azul. Una leyenda urbana dice que tocar la baranda del hierro trae suerte. ¿Quién sabe? ;)

Dok nestrpljivo čekamo da počnu avanture koje imamo planirane za ovu godinu, hteli smo da čekanje učinimo zanimljivijim tako što smo proveli vikend u Taragoni, gradu na sat vremena udaljenosti od Barselone. Iako sam bila u Taragoni ranije, ova španska lepotica ne prestaje da me očarava. 
     Taragona je za mene kao mali Rim smešten uz Mediteran. U pitanju je jedan od najvažnijih starorimskih gradova na Iberijskom poluostrvu (Tarraco), a danas je jedan od glavnih gradova katalonskog dela Španije u kojem se prepliću kosmolitski duh i mir tipičan za neko manje mesto. Taragona pruža toliko toga na relativno maloj teritoriji: ostatke nekadašnjeg rimskog grada, šarene, uzane uličice starog dela grada i savršenu poziciju iznad mora koja će očarati i najizbirljivijeg putnika. 
     Danas ću vam pokazati moj omiljeni deo Taragone, veliko šetalište iznad mora poznato kao Balkon Mediterana. Pogled počinje od luke, a završava se na stenama koje ograđuju plažu po imenu Miracle (Čudo). U sredini se nalazi starorimski amfietatar, idealno ušuškan izemđu palmi i ostalog mediteranskog rastinja i širokog plavog horizonta. Urbana legenda kaže da ako dotaknete gvozdenu ogradu koja okružuju ovaj vidikovac, imaćete sreće. Vredi pokušati, zar ne? ;)

  2. Ja sam očarala ovim mjestom, pogotovo tim amfiteatrom...spoj povijesti, mora i obale, pa tko bi tome odolio? Stvarno mi Tarragona izgleda kao prekrasno mjesto, vidici su predivni i rekla bi da je zaslužila taj laskavi naziv...balkon Mediterana.

    Ti predivno izgledaš! Ta žuta parka jaknica mi se strašno sviđa- ma cijela kombinacija je divna. Mislim da se slažemo po pitanju žute boje:). Jako su mi slatke i vaše zajedničke fotografije.

    Pozdrav

    1. Da, baš nekako ima sve što treba. Ne zna se da li su čarobniji vidici, sva ta rimska zdanja ili grad sa svim svojim detaljima i nekom bezbrižnom atmosferom :) Ceo taj ambijent priziva proleće, a i leto, mada je ipak bilo hladnjikavo tih dana. Hvala ti. Nema toga što nismo rekle o žutoj boji. Razumemo se i ovog puta :)
      Veliki pozdrav i od mene! <3

    2. Rimska zdanja me uvijek posebno privlače, u svakoj zemlji. Stvarno su bili izvaredna graditeljska civilizacija. E da...o žutoj smo sve rekle:)

  8. Jako šarmantno mjesto, djeluje mi kao savršena vikend oaza za kratki bijeg od radnog tjedna i velikog grada :) Preslatko ti stoji ova žuta parka, oduševila sam se čim sam je vidjela! I veselim se pomalo otkrivati sve vaše nove avanture koje stižu u narednim mjesecima! <3 <3

    1. Baš to :) Iako je grad relativno veliki, ipak dominira ta neka opuštena i smirujuća atmosfera. Idealno za kratak beg i punjenje baterija :) Hvala ti! Nekako sam znala da će ti se svideti parka. Znaš mene i žutu :D Drago mi je! Prva avantura kreće uskoro ;) <3 <3

  43. Me encantan esos viajes en los que no se planifica nada jeje como tu bien dices coger el tren y en una hora estas en otro entorno jeje. Las fotos son muy chulas estuve hace un año y hay rincones que me gustaron mucho aunque me gusta más Gerona jeje ;), te lo recomiendo a tan solo 30 minutos de Barcelona. El look es muy apropiado para esta época del año y la chaqueta tiene un color muy favorecedor me estoy animando últimamente con este color ;). Por cierto estoy empezando con Instagram si te animas es quevidamasfacil ya me dices también para seguirte. Un besito guapa.

A mí me encanta IG! Ahora mismo te busco! :) <3

    Žuta boja je definitivno tvoja boja tako da si mi tip top.
