Altafulla and Torredembarra both have a magnificent castle and long sandy beaches
Altafulla is a small but lively coastal town. In the village, there are various information points for tourists (the nearest one to the penthouse is 200 metres). It is here where you can obtain all the information you need to visit this area of the Costa Daurada (Roman ruins of Tarragona, Modernism art in Reus, aquatic parks, theme parks, Delta of the river Ebre,…) or venture further afield
Locally, you also have the possibility of practising water sports at the beach (sailing, water bike, canoes, fishing, water-skiing,…) In summer a variety of activities are organised by the town hall for children. Altafulla has its own summer Proms.
Torredembarra’s castle was built in 1560 by Lluísd’Icard, the lord of the town, and has been restored to house the town council. Torredembarra has a marina and is famous for its many restaurants, notably those of the harbour district. Nearby are two surviving stretches of coastal marshland – Els Salats and Els Muntanyans- which have been turned into a natural reserve /protected wildlife area, thanks to the efforts of local environmentals groups.
Local holidays for Torredembarra are 23-24 june, 13-14-15-16 July, 1-2-3-4 September. Els Castellers de Torredembarra (human towers) are held on these dates. For those who wants to enjoy the night life, Torredembarra offers a designated area just 10 minutes from the yatching port where you can find discos, musical pubs, restaurants…
“Castells” or human towers, are the Costa Daurad most characteristic tradition. The beauty of the spectacle –a highly popular blend of folklore and sport- and the courage and solidarity of the participants (castellers) arouse the enthusiasm of their many loyal fans and the admiration of visitors. The team (colles), composed of men and youngsters (boys and girls), build “castells” of various heights and structures to the musical accompaniment of rustic instruments. They give displays at festivals and compete to form the best, tallest and most hazardous pillars, towers and castles. Nowadays “castells” can reach a whopping height of ten storeys.
