Tarragona is home to a wide variety of leisure options: a marina, an underwater park, a golf course, heated pools, theatres, an auditorium and a casino.
The city hosts different plays throughout the year. In autumn, winter and spring, they are put on at Teatre Metropol. In summer, they are performed outdoors at the Camp de Mart auditorium, against the backdrop of the city's ancient Roman walls. The addition of a third theatre, the new Teatre Tarragona, makes the city a top location in the world of performing arts. We now have three theatres between the Rambla and the Camp de Mart auditorium with a total of 3,000 seats from which audiences of all kinds can enjoy wonderful entertainment.
Tarragona also has two cinemas with a total of 23 screens. Of course, the city's nightlife offer does not stop there. The city’s Low District is likewise home to several nightclubs that regularly host concerts ranging from rock to pop or jazz. In contrast, the quieter Old District (Part Alta), home to a handful of classic nightspots, is the perfect place to enjoy art exhibitions, light music, live shows and more.
Tarragona also has 9 different tour operators and and 22 independent official guides, offering the full gamut of guided tours. You can take advantage of their offers to learn more about the city’s ancient Roman monuments and to discover fascinating facts and anecdotes about different places and times in the history of Tarragona.

‘The Light of the Tableau’ exhibition (15-30 September)
THE TABLEAU OF SANTA TECLA
This choreographic creation by Jaume Guash Pujolà is based on the life, conversion and martyrdom of St. Thecla, the patron saint of Tarragona, which is performed every year by the Esbart Santa Tecla company inside the Cathedral.
Based on her “golden legend” and the functional layout of the Cathedral’s altarpiece, it adheres to a strictly religious sentiment while also adopting a modern aesthetic and our deeply-rooted local traditions, inspired by the artistic construction choreography of our regional moixigangues (ancient street dances and human towers).
Since 1991, the Tableau of Santa Tecla has been performed every year on 20 September.
This year, to mark the thirtieth anniversary of its creation, the idea was to show the work of the different photographers who have recorded the last four events.
The exhibition shows the different ways of capturing the light of the Tableau through the cameras of: Laia Diaz, Rafael López Monné, Miriam Viso, Daniel G. Crespo, Laia Teuler, David Oliete, Albert Torrero, Eloy Gaspar and Ram Giner.
