  • What's especially nice about this amphiteatre is it's location right by the sea. It hosted a Pagan temple, a Roman Christian church, then a Visigoth Christian church and then another medieval church, ...  more »
  • Always visiting Tarragona stop at l Roman amphitheatre. Disappointment because the visits were closed. Not d explanations. We even did the ca jewel tower which is located in a beautiful place with Mediterranean back plan

  • This is a small site with little interpretation of what exists at the site and apart from staff at the ticket office there were no other staff. The ticket office was cash only! Possibly the only place...  more »

  • A very historical and beautiful place, with a great view and a lot of history to dive into, both with your mobile and your eyes. The place will receive 4 out of 5 stars, one star missing because of the state of the place, not as well kept as other places with similar feels to it.
  • Nothing good. The best is a friendly concierge. We got stolen. The breakfast is more then pore. No eggs, old bread and only 2 kinds of ham. Service on the bar is slowly, I waited 8 minutes that I can order a beer. In the bathroom the tab is not working. The shower have no power. Pore. This Hotel earned maybe 1 star for a nice clean room and a friendly concierge. I don't recommend this Hotel.
  • An interesting reconstruction of the original amphitheatre. Sadly most if the original construction has been lost over time and one section even has a medieval church built over it. Still worth a visit though to those interested in such things.
  • It's alright, beautiful views out to sea and some food information but it's been rebuilt so is not the original thing
  • Completely worth the extremely reasonable entry fee. On certain week day it's free. One should donate if possible. This is a beautiful place rich with ancient history and magnificent views. We love Tarragona and her people!
