Rough Guide for... Visitors to the Baix Penedès Region

Active summer days out
Spectacular slides, a giant-wave pool, a long tube, straight slides, river rapids, twist-twist and children's pool. Other facilities - mini zoo, nature school, beach volleyball, a la carte and self service restaurants, cafés and souvenir shops. You can take a picnic and eat it outside the park itself, in a special picnic spot (we recommend this option) if you don’t want to eat basic fast food which is what they offer.

A fun attraction with a bar and picnic area. Have a go on the toboggan-style slide, then enjoy your picnic with the family. Check opening times!

Watch out for busy summer periods, when youngsters love to flock to this beautiful 'secluded' spot! The pool can get rather full at times, detracting from its natural beauty. At other times of year, it is a really pleasant walk with a reward at the end of it.

Sightseeing
A local museum which takes the visitor through the life history of the famous cellist Pau (Pablo) Casals, created within the holiday home where he used to spend his summers. An all-year-round visit. Worth a trip to enjoy the audiovisual tour and if it's beach weather, you can always have a dip in the sea afterwards.

Check visiting times to coincide with the audiovisual presentation in your language which is unmissable! A lovely cool place to explore on a hot summer's day. Combine with a visit to the Vila-rodona Cooperativa and the Chapel at Montferri for a pleasant day out close to home.

Part of a series of Roman ruins in the centre of Tarragona. You can hardly move for history in this lovely city. Plan a day trip and even combine with a swim at the Arrabassada beach afterwards if the going gets tough.
