Circ Roma, Tarragona

Circ Roma once offered the most popular mass spectacle of its time: chariot races. Modern Tarragona was built on top of many such ruins. In the first century, this one formed part of a monumental complex. It measures 325 x 115 m (1060 x 380 ft), much of which remains well preserved. Climb up the tower for a great view of the city, and check out the museum and underground tunnels.

  • Even better than the amphitheatre! So much is underground in large vaulted tunnels and chambers which cannot be seen from above. Superb location for photos and to see Roman architecture on a vast scale.
  • F**king closed on sunday and monday. The two days we were visiting Tarragona. Stupid and so not economic.
  • Awe-inspiring! So humbling to stand amongst architecture and artifacts from as early as the 1st century.
  • It was a great visit and very pretty and exciting for people who are interested in the bullfighting history. Definitely a place that deserves a visit.
  • They have some beautiful ruins around town but they are surrounded by highly developed to tourism. Of course the best view of the ruin is for a small fee.
