Guided tour - Parc Samà - Mari Carmen Granados

Samà Park is a private garden located in the municipality of Cambrils. This park, declared Element of National Cultural Interest, was built in 1881. His founder, Salvador Samà was Marquis of Marianao and descendant of Spaniards who made their fortune in Cuba. Mr. Samà created a unique space as a holyday residence inspired by colonial Cuba.

Samà Park has recently been revitalised and we can find exuberant environments that reflect the influence of English, romantic and neoclassical gardens.  In the garden we also find the Palace of the Samà family, an eclectic building presided over by a splendid colonial porch. It is surrounded by a 14-hectare garden in which you can also find various species of flora: 600 palm trees of different varieties, pines, cedars, banana trees and the exotic taxodium. In addition, the park is completed with species of fauna: fallow deer, pheasants, peacocks and exotic birds try to return to the Park one of its original facets: a zoo.

The most poetic element of this garden is undoubtedly the lake, where we can find bridges, caves and waterfalls. This complex was built by the Barcelona architect Josep Fontseré with the probable collaboration of the young Antoni Gaudí.

Very close

The visit to Samà Park can be completed with a guided tour in the fishing village of Cambrils, located 6 km away. You can visit both the old town and the fishing port.

Cambrils is one of the main tourist towns on the Costa Dorada and it’s an ideal destination both for families and the elderly. It preserves a beautiful old town, “la vila”, with numerous pedestrian streets, quiet and with a rural air. It’s worth highlighting the main square, a porticoed square where the market was held, Lloveras Street, decorated with plants and flowers along its entire length, the remains of the medieval wall, a tower and a portal. Another point of interest is the fishing port, a small port where traditional fishing gear is used and with which you will learn about the importance of this activity in the history of Cambrils.

El meu nom és M. Carme Granados i sóc de Reus. La meva passió per les humanitats em va portar a cursar la llicenciatura d’Història de l’Art a la Universitat Rovira i Virgili. Més tard vaig tenir ocasió d’especialitzar-me cursant el Màster Oficial en Gestió del Patrimoni Cultural de la Universitat de Barcelona. La importància del turisme per a la valoració i la conservació de la nostra cultura i per a la dinamització econòmica i social que desenvolupa, em va dur a orientar la meva carrera professional cap aquest camp. Així doncs, què millor que ser guia turística per viure de prop l’art, la cultura i la història i, poder així, transmetre-les als visitants. He treballat com a monitora de tallers infantils i sènior, com guia i informadora de museus i altres centres culturals, també he tingut ocasió de treballar en la gestió d’alguns museus i evidentment, com a guia turística especialitzada en la província de Tarragona.
