After Girona we had planned on working our way down the southern coast, perhaps all the way to Portugal. But we decided we'd rather stay a few days in a small number of places rather than live in the car, so we went down the southern coast to Tarragona and stayed for 4 days. This is the view from our hotel room. Notice the largely-intact 2nd-century Roman amphitheatre in the lower right; it was used mainly for gladiator fights. Tarragona was a regional Roman capital, and significant 2000-year-old Roman buildings survive. Go here and click on the provided links to see pictures.
