This charming museum was once the home of the great artist and writer Santiago Rusinol where he entertained friends including Picasso and El Greco. Now you can imagine the inspirational and lively conversation while you wander through the excellent collection of modern art.
History of Costa Dorada
Tarragona has been an important town since Roman times, when it was the home of Pontius Pilate. There are still many reminders of its distinguished past in the perfectly preserved Roman circus, amphitheatres and aqueduct – as well as a magnificent 13th century castle.
High above Barcelona is the Monestir de Montserrat, the destination for pilgrims and tourists since 1025 when it was founded on the site of numerous visions of the Virgin Mary. Today, it is the home of an order of monks who are guardians of Catalonia’s patron saint, La Moreneta (the Black Virgin). Take the cable car for a dramatic entrance to this fascinating community.
You almost feel like you are stepping into another world of peace and tranquillity when you visit this 12th century monastery.
