From Barcelona Sants to Taragona there are two options, one along the coastline and the other for high-speed trains stopping in Camp de Tarragona. Timetables are available on RENFE page (English).

  1. On the coastline we can take regional trains (final destination to Tortosa, Mora d'Ebre, Reus, Valencia, Zaragoza) as well as long distance trains. The trip takes about one hour. Notice that the last regional train departs at 21:30. The price of a ticket is about 7 euros for regional trains and 20 euros for long distance trains.
  2. High speed trains situate Tarragona to 30 minutes from Barcelona or Lleida. The train station Camp de Tarragona is 20-25 minutes (by bus) far away from Tarragona. An AVE tourist ticket is about 35 euros while an AVANT ticket is only 15 euros. Please consult the bus table from Camp de Tarragona to Tarragona down in this page.
