If you think about an amusement park and Barcelona, you will probably think of the Tibidabo, a beautiful little park located in the mountain of the same name, where you can go have fun with all the family and give your children a special day among all the sightseeing of your vacation. But did you know that there is another amusement park that is much, much bigger and that could make the trip truly unforgettable for your children too? We're talking about Port Aventura, a huge entertainment resort located just a short trip from Barcelona, in the province of Tarragona.

Port Aventura counts with over 3 million visitors a year, and for a good reason. It is one of the main attractions of the Costa Daurada (Golden Coast), the beautiful yellow shore of southern Catalonia. Port Aventura has had quite the history since it was inaugurated in 1995, more than 20 years ago. In 1997, it was acquired by Universal, although it was resold again in 2004, and would be resold a few times after that. But, whoever owns it, Port Aventura is still thriving and growing, and still welcomes thousands of children every week.

If you've never heard about this giant theme park, keep reading these lines, especially if you're thinking about visiting Barcelona. It's just an hour away, and it may change your plans a little bit. Port Aventura is well worth dedicating a day ¬?and your kids will probably agree with that!

Port Aventura World, a cluster of worlds

We all know now that Port Aventura is an amusement park, but did you know that it is also a theme park? It was conceived as a cluster of worlds based on real civilisations around the world, current or old. Those six worlds are built in detail so they reproduce recognisable characteristics of those worlds, thus guaranteeing a total immersion of the visitors. The attractions and spectacles are, of course, framed inside the world where they are located or take place. Let's take a tour!

When you enter the park, you will be welcomed by the Mediterrània, an area designed after a typical Catalan seaside town, with beautiful ports and a station from which you can take a boat tour or a train tour of the park respectively. It's not big in attractions, but it has many shops. The main attraction is the accelerator coaster Furious Baco, which opened in 2007.

From Mediterrània, you can take your map and walk anywhere in the park. You can go to Mexico, which is based on the Mayan civilisation and has many shows and spectacles, including the attraction-show Templo del Fuego (Temple of Fire), which will make you feel like Indiana Jones. There is also the Far West, that will bring you back to the western films you've seen so much on TV, and the Polynesia, which is quite small and big in water attractions. And let's not forget about the biggest and most majestic world, China, which is styled after Imperial China and the Great Wall.

In 2011, a new world was inaugurated in Port Aventura: SesamoAventura, dedicated for the youngest ones in the family and populated with the characters of Sesame Street. Are you ready to meet Elmo?
