Tarragona is a beautiful coastal resort on the Costa Dorada, just south of Barcelona. This is an ideal location for teenagers wanting to learn Spanish as the city is lively, but not too big. Close to beautiful beaches, Tarragona is also home to one of Spain's largest posts, as well as a harbour where leisure boats can be moored. The Spanish school is located in the heart of the city centre and is just a short walk away from the seafront.
