Carrer Arquebisbe Pere de Cardona

The archbishop of Tarragona, Pere de Cardona, ordered the construction of this defence tower in 1530 to protect the population and its assets from the pirates that constantly invaded the Port of Salou, attracted by commercial fleets. The outside still has its original appearance, with the heraldic shield above the large entry door. The tower is connected to the adjoining buildings, built in the 18th century, by a bridge. The inside has been restored and houses a cultural centre that organises art exhibitions, amongst other activities.
