Your second day begins with a ride on the tourist train, which takes you around the town’s most interesting sights, through its narrow streets overlooked by flower-filled balconies and flapping laundry. As you pass the medieval walls and the hermitage, you can hear the town’s history and information about each feature. Be aware, though, that the train only runs until October, when it stops for its winter holidays.
If you have time before a late lunch, you can visit the fascinating Molino de las Tres Eres museum, housed in an old water-driven flour mill, where you can view its two permanent exhibitions, 'Cambrils: The origins', dedicated to its archaeology, and 'The Mill of the Three Ages: A Living Witness to the Past', which explains the original purpose of the building. The mill will be activated while you're there, which is always a great curiosity, especially for children.
And now your appetite is whetted, you face the difficult choice of where to eat, with so many delicious options. Cambrils is known as the gastronomic capital of the Costa Daurada, due to its chefs who prepare traditional recipes handed down through the generations, and to the top-quality produce from the sea and the local harvests. Always recommended, though, is the local 'suquet de pescado con salsa romesco', a traditional seafood dish in sauce, 'fideos rubios', which is similar to thin spaghetti, or the local black rice.
And after lunch, there's nothing better than a gentle stroll around the port area, where you can enjoy its shops and peaceful streets.
