Circ Roma, Tarragona

4.4
#3 of 20 in Historic Sites in Costa Dorada
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.

    For us an unforgettable one is immersed in the Roman time because we were able to stroll under the Roman circus as at the time of the games! The site is very large and well put in value. We were all charmed. End of the visit on the roof terrace of the building with views of the Cathedral, l amphitheatre and circus! Visit not to be missed!

    This interesting site was the location of the Roman circus but what remains underground provides the scale of the circus and a cool relief from the sun. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • Steeped with history
  • Great places to eat
  • Great place to visit, lots to see, lots of history.
  • Awesome, walking around and here, you can imagine how it must have been..
  • Once a horse racing circut, only one turn of which remains, this place is still worth the entrance fee.
