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.

  • This is a very good place at Tarragona, you will see different parts of the roman circus. This visit takes more or less 30 min if you stop everywhere. The most part of the visit is underground so is a good place to go on summer when the street is nearly 35° C.
  • A lot of information about what happened there, also a lot more to see that meets the eye. Definitely a good hour or two in there
  • The age of empires beside the beach...just amazing sea sight from the top row of the roman circus...
  • Thank goodness they discovered this... and to think that they only literally uncovered in 1977.
  • 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.
