Create an itinerary including Circ Roma
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.

  • Enjoyable to wander around, using the QR audio guide on our own phones. So much history in one space and one happy husband who couldn’t stop talking about it all evening!

  • Amazing! You can feel history looking down on you here, and imagine what it was like when there were races in the ancient arena. 💯 Entry is € 3,30/adult and includes the museum as well, alternatively get a pass for four attractions for € 7,40/person. Well worth it, easy 5/5.
  • Definitely worth a visit. One needs some imagination to “see” the Circus but it must have been huge. One wing was kept quite intact and the view from the tower (combined visit) is great. Recommended as part of the combi ticket.
