Today the province of Tarragona. The last day I talk about Ebro River forms a big Delta, maybe one the most interesting visit of Tarragona.
Delta is very windy area. Summer is warm and with the humidity feel warmer. Rice is the big product of the Delta. Now also they produce lot of sea fruits.
The capital is one of the most important cities in the peninsula, the old Roman city of Tarraco. Lot of historic things to visit, and also beach and important port.
Tarragona is very industrial area for the oil, is the only area of Spain with oil. There refineries. Also there are 2 Nuclear plants, Vandellos in the Coast and Asco in the Ebro river.
The highest mountains are in the ports, lot of rocks some trees that are the southern point that they live. The rainfall is bigger than all the areas arround.
There are more mountains in Tarragona. Montsant paradise to climb, Prades the red village with amazing forest. Just and example of the variety of this region.
Stil in Tarragona we find a very nice village with walls Montblanc in the Conca de Barbera.
Just a small presentation of a region with more interesting places than you expect.
The Ribera is interesting to find historic places from the battle of Ebro in the civil war.
Miravet and the castle, with still a boat to cross the river. In this point is a very big river.
There is important the traditional Calçots, specially in Valls the capital of the Alt Camp.
Very complete region, the biggest river, important factories, beach, Delta, mountains, the country produce lot of Mediterranean products.
