  • Definitely worth a visit, the amphitheatre shows you pretty well what a Roman entertainment venue looks like. Very obvious are the Visigothis basilica and early Christian church which were built on to...  more »

  • Si vens a Tarragona l'has de visitar. If you visit Tarragona you have to go.
  • Stunning piece of art! Aside from a civil war, Spain has not been a war zone (unlike other European countries). As a result, Spain houses some of the best, well preserved ancient architecture.
  • This will force you to stop and think of the Romans in Spain. You will have no choice but to get a book or listen to a podcast and learn about how modern Spain came to exist...
  • It's nice to visit, but only if you are willing to buy the ticket combined for all roman attractions. The single ticket dont worth it.
  • Beautiful place, worth the visit. Not much left of the original amphitheater but it's so inexpensive you can't complain. Beautiful views.
