Balcó del Mediterrani

The Balcó del Mediterrani, or “balcony to the Mediterranean,” is one of Tarragona’s iconic symbols at the end of the Rambla. It offers a splendid viewpoint over the coastline.

The iron railings along the Balcó del Mediterrani—the balcony to the Mediterranean—were designed by the architect Ramon Salas i Ricomà in 1889. They have become one of Tarragona’s iconic symbols. The vistas from this viewing point overlook the sea, the Amphitheatre, the promontory, the Punta del Miracle, and kilometres of coastline.

Because of this view and the history, the Balcó del Mediterrani is among the most popular attractions for locals and visitors alike. A 300 metre-long promenade, built over the railway, covers the sheer drop beneath the Balcony and seafront.
