Museu Moli de las Tres Eres (The Three Era Mill Museum)
Cambrils is often thought of, first and foremost, as a beach town. However, there is so much more to Cambrils than just its beach. About 1 km inland from the port area of Cambrils you will find Cambrils' old town. The area is steeped in history and is rich with things to see and do. The port area itself also offers a wide range of interesting sights that could keep you occupied for a day or two during your trip.

This page provides a comprehensive guide to the various attractions on offer in Cambrils. I will cover the museums, the churches, historical buildings and the monuments and statues. A description of each attraction is provided, along with contact details and the address. At the bottom of the page you can find a map of Cambrils with locations of all of the Cambrils attractions included on it.


Tip Second to the beach, Cambrils is arguably most celebrated for its cuisine. It is known to be the best place in the Costa Daurada to sample local cuisine. It is also the home to two Michelin starred restaurants. For this reason, it is worth treating the restaurants of Cambrils as one of its main attractions. See our guide to Spanish restaurants in Cambrils.
