  • Strolling through the city of Tarragona give realize that it is a Roman city, there are areas which have been recovering, under the current Tarragona is the Roman, the amphitheater is splendid, the walls in good condition, has been recovering the circus, etc... pity that recovering the Roman city almost is impossible, to restore all buildings see it unworkable.

  • I like to visit Tarragona at any time of the year, is known for its beaches, but the city itself has many places to discover. Recommend wander through streets and down to the port to walk to the lighthouse.

  • If you enjoy history, you will love this! I wouldn't want to go walking through the Amfiteatre in very hot weather as the heat in the bowl of the theatre probably is pretty intense. It's very close 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.
