Used as a Greek and Roman port once, Salou is a small town with a rich history. The historic importance of Salou lies in the fact that the fleet of James I of Aragon departed from the port of Salou to conquer the Balearic Islands to create the Kingdom of Majorca in the start of the 13th century. By the end of the 13th century, King Alfonso III of Aragon also departed from this port to conquer Menorca from the Moorish. After this, the region became the nest of pirates. Salou was then considered as unsafe so the Archbishop of Tarragona decided to erect a new defense tower; now known as “Torre Vella” in the second quarter of the 16th century. It was in the second half of the 19th century when the development of the town started.
