About the venue. The city of Tarragona

According to Lonely Planet, Tarragona is a “effervescent port city, Roman history collides with beaches, nightlife and a food scene that perfumes the air with freshly grilled seafood. The biggest lure is the wealth of ruins in Spain’s second most important Roman site, including mosaic-packed museums and a seaside amphitheater. A roll-call of excellent places to eat gives you good reason to linger in the knot of lanes in the medieval center, flanked by a broad cathedral with Gothic flourishes. Tarragona is also a gateway to the Costa Daurada’s sparkling beaches and the feast of Modernism architecture in nearby Reus”.
