B is for… Boat

Whenever I visit Tarragona, I like to pop down to the fishermen’s district, El Serallo.



It is home to a well known fish market, and many fish and seafood restaurants. The area has undergone much renovation work in the last few years, whilst still maintaining its atmosphere. It now boasts a very pleasant seafront promenade from which to admire the fishing boats. To my mind, there is nothing better than a stroll along the front taking in the colourful boats and watching the fishermen at work, followed by eating some of their produce.

I especially like the little boats with the large, clumsy-looking lights for night fishing.

And the little dumpy boats:

And the bigger working boats:

I hope you enjoyed my boat selection!

  1. I “did” enjoy your boats. We have something similar not far from my place and it’s called “Fisherman’s Wharf” like in San Francisco. We buy salmon, sole, crab, etc. fresh off the boats.
