Enjoy this Catalan tradition in Tarragona

During the last day in the year, a funny character called Home dels Nassos, who has as many noses as days left in the year (a large nose), represented by a nano (big head), walks around the city’s streets giving out sweets to children.

During this same day, at the platja del Miracle (Miracle beach) next to the Marina, the bravest and most daring people go into the cold Mediterranean waters to celebrate the last swim of the year, the Bany de Sant Silvestre. After the swim all the bathers are given Cava, neulas and T-shirts.
