After the Segregation
The city of Salou has a relatively short history, as it was previously linked to the towns of Vilaseca and La Pineda. But after independence in the 1980s, it has become the main center of leisure activities and services on the Costa Dorada due to the diversity of its offer, the quality and specialization of its tourist facilities, completly dedicated to the consumer tourist. Tourism has become the local driving force for the development and exploration of the diversity of the recreational and cultural offer of its surroundings.
The Cosso Blanco
Coinciding with the carnival season, which started as a joke between friends who threw pieces of paper to each others during a party, it is currently a consolidated event. Cos Blanc is the carnival parade that takes place in the center of the city Salou on the first Saturday of February and congregates thousands of people together from neighboring localities, prepared to entertain themselves with the carnival parade and under the tons of confetti that are thrown.
At the entrance of the city you will find the harbor, various emblematic houses and the shops that run along the wide boulevard, the boulevard Jaume I, which also has its own statue halfway along the promenade. At the end of the promenade you will find the Luminous Fountain, which during the high season offers a light and water show that marvels everyone. After the show you can always enjoy a tasty rice dish in one of the many restaurants nearby or have a drink in the bars and pubs that open their doors to the nightlife.
