  • The Tarragona ampitheatre, transports you to another time. This very well preserved. It is worth knowing what
    show original
  • Excellently preserved, with a garden that you go through to get there, just as well maintained. Located a few meters from the sea, watch the shows around 2000 years ago in that place was going to be spectacular

  • Lovely grounds and looked after really well .loads of information around the site in Spanish and English well worth a visit . 
  • 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.
  • Beautiful place, worth the visit. Not much left of the original amphitheater but it's so inexpensive you can't complain. Beautiful views.
  • Very cool Roman place and quite cheap to visit , just a few euros each. I definitely recommend going inside to see all of it
  • 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...
  • lloc molt interesting. Very interesting place.
