Rambla Nova, a Street full of live
If you go shopping and you feel like going on foot, take the opportunity to see the city while you see the shops, ideally around the area of the Rambla Nova leading from the Plaza Imperial Tarraco to the Balcony of the Mediterranean and all the adjacent streets which are full of stores. Here, you will find many fashionable stores of all brands, from low cost to stores with brands, home decoration, sports, jewelry, banks, stores and many bars, restaurants and terraces to rest under the shades sipping a soda. Along the Rambla Nova, you can also relax in one of its banks while watching the hustle of the daily life of Tarragona, as the promenade is the hub of the city.

If what you want is to buy fresh food, you have to visit the Central Market of Tarragona, which is located in the Plaza de Corsini near the Rambla Nova in a beautiful Modernist building from the early twentieth century, with beautiful columns of cast iron inside and a no less beautiful entrance gates.
