The organic way: restaurant Almosta, Tarragona

Restaurant Almosta, Tarragona

There is something deeply satisfying when a new restaurant opens in Tarragona and it’s a good one, a real good one! Almosta is tiny, energetic eatery, hidden away in Carrer Ventallos No.13, just off Plaça del Forum and the first thing you notice when you walk in is the row of organic beers and wines framing a large blackboard listing the dishes, wine of the day and opening hours for everyone to see.

Els Tres Tombs, Tarragona

The monastery of Poblet, Catalonia

You get a sense of chill when entering the portal of the monastery of Poblet, a sense of secrecy and silence  which permeates every step of your way. Poblet lies a mere 30 minutes drive from Tarragona, beyond the industrial landscape  and deep in to the foot hills of the mountains of Prades, surrounded by peace and the past.
