Circ Roma, Tarragona

4.5
#3 of 19 in Historic Sites in Costa Dorada
Ruin Historic Site
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.

  • 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.
