Next day we arrived in Barcelona where we took a bus trip to Tarragona ... we've been in Barcelona already ... it turned out to be a good decision as it rained all day in Barcelona, but we had beautiful sunshine there! After 1,5 hours drive we arrived in this wonderful old town ... here a first impression after leaving the bus ... have a look at the colourful posts here ...
