Paseo Jaume I in Salou 

Salou is a unique place, and Paseo Jaume I even more so. Few places transform so much during the day. The Paseo de Salou is a scene much loved by the inhabitants of the municipality and by all the tourists who visit the capital of the Costa Daurada.

Early in the morning, when the warm sunlight begins to dawn, Paseo Jaume I is the ideal setting for running. During the first hours of the day, Paseo Jaume I is full of life. The majestic palm trees are the best protection from the sun for the pedestrians who walk along this main artery of Salou's maritime façade which, as the day draws to a close, dresses up to welcome those who stroll in search of the fresh marinade.

And at night, don't think that people forget it, on the contrary! Here are the impressive ornamental fountains of Salou. For this reason, during the summer, children and not so children walk through this place to, between bites of their ice cream, cool off along the routes proposed by the water fountains, among which the Cybernetic Fountain, the Labyrinth Fountain and the Light Source Fountain.

Stroll through this area and enjoy Salou!

Monument Jaume I of Salou 

One of the most outstanding sites of interest on Paseo Jaume I is the Monument of Jaume I, which is located in the center of the promenade. This sculpture evokes the historical date of September 5, 1229, in which the Catalan fleet commanded by King Jaume I left this point to conquer Mallorca.

This sculptural ensemble is made up of a sailing ship with the figure of King Jaume I in stone and the horse in stone covered in gold leaf. The monument, which presides over Salou's main promenade, was inaugurated on November 28, 1965, and is the work of the architect Salvador Ripoll and the sculptor Lluís Maria Saumells.
