In the historical heart of Altafulla in Tarragona, is this ancient convent constructed in 1732 (Big Cloisters would be an approximate translation of the name). The skilfull restoration has saved many of the original features - the old balconies, the arches and original iron and woodwork - and the rooms have been decorated in the fresh, bright colours from which they have been named, Acero Dulce, Ocre Campo, Tierra Africa, Carbon Piedra. The bathrooms are wonderfully modern but use traditional materials in their decoration. The building has an interior courtyard, a swimming pool, terrace with solarium and jacuzzi and, of course, beautiful vistas of the Mediterranean and the castles of Tamariz and Altafulla.

The Costa Dorada’s main city, Tarragona, has almost doubled in size during the last few decades, its residential districts continually expanding around the medieval core. Tarragona, originally built on a rocky bluff. Tarragona, can trace its roots back to 218 BC, when it was founded by the ancient Romans as a legionnaires military base. Vestiges of its past still remain in the form of ruins of the Roman amphitheatre, aqueduct, forum and other buildings sited on the Paseo Arqueologico (Archaeological Avenue), which leads to some panoramic viewpoints. A wide boulevard called the Rambla Nova represents the modern main street outside the old city walls. A popular outing for visitors is to explore the old harbour, known as El Serrallo, to watch the fishing boats arrive and auction their catch. The city also sports some excellent beaches on its doorstep, including Playa Llarga, regarded as one of the biggest and best on the Catalonian coast. Among the many museums is an archaeological museum devoted to Roman antiquities; the Diocesan Museum displaying Gothic paintings, sculptures and tapestries; and a house museum detailing the life and career of renowned cellist, Pablo Casals
