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.

  • It is a wonderful ruins with the amphitheatre. I want you to leave it well by all means. Is it because foreigners feel that they are living infested with ruins now?

  • During our visit to Tarragona, we could not fail to visit one of the most important archaeological sites in the city dating back to the first century after Christ at the behest of Emperor Domitian, where the chariot and quadrigle races were housed. We have descended into the history of the old, in the style of the Roman Empire, appreciating the remains and what is exposed. Highly recommended visit.

  • Very interesting and well taken care of. There was an amazing animated video showing the original site and nowadays, a great way of having a mental idea of history!
  • Grand to be able to see much of the Roman ruins. I'd recommend downloading the 3D app 'imageen' to phone or tablet before you go
