Located on Spain’s gorgeous Golden Coast, the traditional fishing village of Cambrils is internationally renowned for its sprawling, silken sands and sublime selection of seafood restaurants. The picturesque harbour is a perfect place in which to while away the sun soaked afternoon hours and the town’s ancient quarter offers architectural delights and a rich historical heritage. A warm Mediterranean climate, magnificent maritime heritage and glorious gastronomical scene make Cambrils a dazzling and delightful destination.
One of the town’s most imposing features is undoubtedly the bulky and dominating structure of Torre d’Esquirol, a minimalist style building that overshadows the golden sands and gently lapping waves of Cavet Beach.
Enjoy the city’s rich historical heritage with a visit to the Castalania, the crumbling ruins of a medieval feudal area which glows terracotta in the midday sun. The building’s intriguing past is detailed in the excellent exhibitions surrounding the sight.
The town of Cambril’s has skilfully managed to retain its old world charm while also responding to touristic demand; a cultural occurrence that breathes new life into ancient tradition is the market, a colourful and chaotic biweekly event that brings the somnolent town’s streets to life. Peruse colourful stalls bursting with olive oil, honey and fresh fruit on Passeig de Albert or pick from glittering treasures and antique jewellery at the Saturday market on Place de Espanya.
Boasting a prime and picturesque location in the midst of the promenade, La Casa del Vermut is an impeccably chic bar dedicated to one revered refreshment; Vermouth. Locally brewed vermouth is served in quaint decanters upon the beautiful terrace, upon which fresh oysters and magnificent ocean vistas can be enjoyed. (Passeig Miramar, 8, 43850 Cambrils)
