Description

This is a modernist building designed by the famous architect Domenech I Montaner and has been recently restored into a splendid five star luxury hotel by the hotel La Posada Real de la Casa del Abad de Ampudia. Work on the restoration of this 1920's Masia has been carried out by the architect Ángel García Puertas, who is also responsible for the interior design. The restaurant, La Gigantea, is run by the chef Joaquín Koerper. There is a delightful outdoor pool, a spa-wellness centre, a business area and a sports area at that hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. The complex has been recently completed and this is a very pleasant, interesting place to relax, enjoy modernist architecture, and have some fine food.

Additional information

La Selva del Camp is just 10 km from Salou.

On its own merits, Salou has become one of the main tourist centres on the Costa Daurada. Along its extensive coast, protected by Cape Salou, beautiful beaches and coves with fine sand give way to one another, enjoying an exceptional climate and offering infinite possibilities for enjoying the sea and for all kinds of water sports.
The long Paseo de Les Palmeres is one of this town's most symbolic places, where leisure and fun are guaranteed.

Salou's surroundings enable you to discover lovely landscapes or spend an unforgettable day at Universal’s Port Aventura theme park.

All this without forgetting the local cuisine, based on excellent products from the sea.

Salou is situated in the shelter of Cabo de Salou, a few kilometres from the city of Tarragona. This town, which emerged as a small trading and fishing centre, has a hundred-year-old tradition of tourism thanks to its good climate and a coast with transparent waters.

Between the cape and Vilafortuny, Salou spreads over a broad coastal strip in which wide beaches, like those of Llevant or Platja Llarga, alternate with quiet coves of fine, golden sand.

A sun and beach offer completed with the many opportunities offered by its marina, where all kinds of pleasure boats moor and which is the place to go for practising any water sport.

The town

The Paseo de Les Palmeres, which runs parallel to the symbolic Llevant beach, is the town's main street. This long avenue - the main meeting place for the town's residents as well as for outsiders - brings together some of the principal tourist complexes.

Along this busy walkway, lovely examples of Modernist architecture draw your attention, like the tower of Cal Bonet, and the monument erected in remembrance of King Jaime I, who chose the coast of Salou to set off for the conquest of Mallorca in the Middle Ages.

When night falls, Salou concentrates a lively nightlife in and around this point, divided between its many terraces, bars, restaurants and discotheques.

The route around the city brings you to discover other places of interest, like the Torre Vella (Old Tower), a 16th-century building converted into a centre for exhibitions and cultural events, or to look at the old railway station, now restored.

To complete the range of leisure activities on offer in Salou, it is worth going to the outskirts to enjoy an unforgettable day in the facilities of Universal’s Port Aventura theme park, one of the largest in Spain.

Surroundings and cuisine

Salou's location invites you to tour various places, both on the coast of the province and inland. Several kilometres to the east, Tarragona has an important legacy of monuments among extensive beaches. Its Roman archaeological remains, declared a World Heritage Site, are one of the points of interest of the provincial capital.

Also right on the coast are towns like Calafell, Torredembarra or Cambrils, which combine historic buildings with excellent tourist infrastructures.

Inland, the province has the important monumental site formed by the Modernist buildings of the Plaza de Prim and the Casa Navàs in Reus. Meanwhile, the Cistercian Monastery Route, takes you to get to know the monasteries of Santes Creus and Poblet in the province of Tarragona, the latter declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

At the southern end of the province is the Delta del Ebro Natural Park, a protected area considered one of the most important wetlands on the Iberian peninsula.

The stars of the local cuisine are the excellent fish and shellfish from the coast. So, the crustaceans from Cambrils and the langoustines from San Carlos de la Rápita enjoy fame and recognition Romesco sauce (made with dried red peppers, tomatoes and almonds) serves to accompany both the vegetables from inland and the fish. Meanwhile, the province's extensive vineyards give rise to five interesting denominations of origin: Tarragona, Conca de Barberá, Penedés, Priorato and Terra Alta.
