Although it cannot be denied that Barcelona is the most famous Catalan city, Tarragona also occupies a prominent place within this community. It is well communicated with the capital and also the entrepreneurial spirit of its service sector in relation to the automobile is admirable.
Often, drivers of vans and other vehicles feel a little neglected. Traffic restrictions are the order of the day in our country and those who work on a daily basis behind the wheel of a car often complain about the obstacles they encounter along their route.
However, Tarragona is an example of coexistence between drivers and pedestrians and there are no major obstacles to overcome to move around the city in a van. That is one of the great attractions of this city from the point of view of Furauto.
Our van rental company is present in Tarragona with the sole purpose that our customers can have vans and minivans adapted to their needs. No more excuses for not driving around Tarragona.
A move or attend to the orders and requests of a client. Book your van through the form on our website or call us to complete the formalities of the rental process. There will be no route that you can't drive using our vehicles!
Thanks to Furauto, you can pick up and deliver your rental vehicle in key places of the capital of Tarragona, as in the train station or bus station. Also in other areas of the province, for example in Reus and at the airport.
On the other hand, you can also benefit from the On-Way system. That is, you have the opportunity to pick up your rental van in a location, for example in Tarragona, and return it in any town in Spain.
Tarragona is home to the Archaeological Ensemble of Tarraco, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000. This area includes the Walls, the Provincial Forum, the Circus, the Colonial Forum, the Theater, the Amphitheater, the Aqueduct and many other Roman buildings. It is possible to find all these monuments in the same city because Tarraco, as the Romans called it, was considered the capital of the Roman province of Hispania Citerior.
Tarragona also has important tourist centers built in later times, such as the Metropolitan and Primate Basilica Cathedral of Santa Tecla, the Balcony of the Mediterranean, the Serrallo Quarter, the Metropol Theater or the Port. If you visit Tarragona, do not forget to taste its seafood and its blue fish, with Denomination of Origin Blue Fish of Tarragona. In any restaurant you can find the espineta with snails, the cassola de romesco and the arrossejat. The province is also famous for its mistelas and its wines with Denomination of Origin Tarragona.
Travel around the province of Tarragona and discover wonderful coastal and inland towns thanks to your Furauto rental van. An ideal opportunity to travel in the company of family or friends saving money on gas and tolls:
Drive your rental van on the A-7 to link later with the N-340 and access in about 20 minutes to this small town populated by 5,000 residents. This area allows you to enjoy the sea and the coast, without forgetting the artistic heritage. Also visit the Church of San Martín, the hermitage of Sant Antoni, the Castle of Montserrat and the Roman Villa of the Munts.
66 kilometers separate the capital from this small town of just over 700 inhabitants. To get here, it is necessary to drive along the N-420 for just under an hour. Located in the region of Ribera de Ebro, it houses a castle of Andalusian origin, which was transformed into a convent by the Order of the Temple during the twelfth century. This fortress was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1988.
You will need about 40 minutes to get from the capital to this town of about 7,200 inhabitants. Drive your rental van along the A-27 to link up with the N-240. Take Avenida Lluís Companys to enter the town of Montblanc. Once there, the visitor will find numerous religious centers, museums and civil buildings. Its old town was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1948.
The T-11 connects comfortably and in 17 minutes the capital of Tarragona with Reus, the second most populated municipality in the province. Stroll through its streets to contemplate its peculiar buildings. Do not miss the Bofarull Palace, Casa Navàs, Casa Rull and the bell tower of the Priory of San Pedro. The modernist architect Antoni Gaudí and the painter Mariano Fortuny were born in Reus.
About 40 minutes away is this small village of 950 inhabitants, located north of the Muntanyes de Prades and in the region of Cuenca de Barbera. To reach it, drive along the A-27 and the N-240 for 49 kilometers. Its most outstanding monuments are the Parish Church of the Transfiguration of the Lord, the Castle of Milmanda and the Royal Monastery of Santa Maria de Poblet (declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991).
Naturally the road you choose to reach the limits of Tarragona will vary depending on where we started our journey. From Furauto believe it advisable to deal with both the national roads that pass through Tarragona as those found in the interior of the province:
Moving by van in Tarragona is something simple and advantageous. However, when it comes to making transfers within the city limits and parking is another matter. The truth is that this circumstance is not too surprising since it is not the first Spanish city whose center and main roads are somewhat saturated by the influx of vehicles.
To solve this problem in Furauto we have compiled a list of available parking lots that we believe may be of interest to our customers.
As we have seen, leaving the van in a pay station in Tarragona is not as profitable and cheap as in other areas of Spain. However, keep in mind that Furauto users use the rental vans and minivans for transport and travel that they do not do on a regular basis so this extra outlay is worth it if the occasion requires it.
In November 2016 Josep Acero, president of Aparcaments Municipals de Tarragona S.A, reached an agreement with the company EasyPark to modernize the parking sector. The idea is that drivers will no longer have to stop to pay for their stay in subway parking lots thanks to a license plate recognition system.
Cell phones will be the key to implementing this breakthrough in the application of intelligent solutions in the field of mobility. It remains to be seen how this system will work and how it will be received by citizens.
