The history of Salou takes place around its natural port, which lies on the waters of the Costa Daurada. The Iberians were the first to establish settlements here, followed by the Romans, when the town was known as Salauris. Later King Jaume I would set sail from these waters as he and his troops headed off to conquer Majorca. Several centuries later, the port’s heavy trading activity would end up making it the target of numerous pirate attacks.
Salou enjoys a Mediterranean climate, temperate and hot, with a tourist season that extends throughout the year. Summers are hot, yet cooled by sea breezes, and spring’s fair weather lingers on well into autumn. Winters are typical of the Mediterranean climate, with extremely mild temperatures.
