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.

  • 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
