Gran Claustre

Altafulla, Tarragona

A medieval-modern hotel in a seaside village in the land of Miró, Gaudí, Picasso and Casals – with a chic pool and a good restaurant


39 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


The setting, next to 17th-century Altafulla Castle (the Baroness still spends her summers there), is historic and the view over the rooftops marvellous. All the Costa Dorada is within your grasp and wonderful Tarragona is 20 minutes by train. This “boutique” hotel, comfortable, charming and created from an 18th-century nunnery and cloisters, has been ingeniously woven into a complex of ancient alleyways, with Reception and 19 extra bedrooms in a new wing. Next door is a friendly restaurant where the locals go, and you can walk to the sweet beach with its cafés, but don’t miss dining in the hotel’s own restaurant, headed by Jaume Drudis; the menu is regional, the kitchen open-to-view and the bouillabaisse exceptional. Bedrooms are boutiquey in style and we liked those in the old part best, with their unusual shapes, old paintings and restored shutters and beams; away from the street they’re also quieter and have the best views. However, the sober new rooms are to be cheered up (2016). Bask by the small, beautiful decked pool; gaze on the turquoise sea from the top-terrace jacuzzi; spend the day at the beach.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Reception .

  • The short distance to fascinating cities and sights such as Barcelona, Tarragona, Port Aventura theme park, the Ebro Delta, the Cistercian Monastery route,the cavas, all combine to make Altafulla the starting and finishing point of a whole variety of tours
  • In 1998, the town was declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest by the Catalan government, primarily thanks to the Vila Closa (the ancient walled town) and its ravals, or suburbs.
  • Two years later, in 2000, UNESCO declared the Roman villa of Els Munts a World Heritage Sit
  • Visit also the seafront promenade (with the old "Botigues de Mar" of the former traders and fishermen
  • Why not enjoy the wines served at our restaurant and use the hotel as a base to explore the local wine regions? An original option is to combine exercise and wine with the "Walk & Wine " program.
  • If what you like is walking, the Golden Coast is the ideal place. The large number of trails, amazing scenery and excellent existing facilities, will make your walk unforgettable. The main areas for walking tours are the mountains of Montsant and Prades.
