Jacob I of Aragon and the Harbor
Cambrils is not only known thanks to its large beaches and its multiple services. Right from these beaches, the troops of Jacob I the Conqueror set sails to take control of the Mallorcan islands. Cambrils is now known not only because of this warfare, but as the cozy port town of Cambrils, a place where fresh fish arrives every afternoon for its inhabitants and seafood restaurants.
You can not miss the yacht club, the lighthouse and of course the promenade with its cycle path that connects Cambrils with Salou. In addition, it has numerous shops and catering establishments of various categories.
Cambrils is also famous among other things, for its gastronomy. The reason for this lies in the tradition of catering establishments in the city, from fishermen’s taverns to renowned restaurants, many of them distinguished with national and international recognitions. The sea and the land provide the basis of the Cambril’s kitchen. Some of his star products are the artichokes, the emperor lobsters, their rice dishes, romesco sauce and, of course, the olive oil with the designation of origin Siurana.
Without reaching the level of importance of Tarragona, you can also visit several Roman remains in Cambrils, which can be found in the La Llosa district. In the various museums you can also find other Roman remains, as well as everything related to the history of the city and the events that took place during the Civil War or cultural exhibitions of national prominence. On the other hand, it also has several churches and hermitages such as the Verge del Camí or the church of Santa Maria in Vilafortuny.
