Our main reason for visiting Tarragona on the way to lovely Barcelona was to see the Roman aquaduct. Imagine our surprise when we left the Placa de la Font hotel for a familiarisation walk, and within 200 metres found an amazing B C Roman ruin, comprising Praetorium and partly excavated Circus, and just down the hill the spectacular amphitheater right...

I've posted a note under the Amphitheater for the four in total - and recommended that this be the first of your stops. BTW, the cost is all but free - under 5 Euro per person for the four, as I recall.

We went to several of the Roman ruins located in Tarragona and they are very worthwhile. One can buy a combined ticket for 4 sites which costs only sightly more than buying single tickets for 2 of the sites however for some reason the fellow at the entrance did not want to sell us the combined ticket since he felt...

The remains of the ancient Roman Circus and the Praetorium, with its massive tower and Roman vaulting under the tower, are a single site, accessible with a single entry ticket. The Praetorium, started in the first century B.C.E. and improved by later Roman emperors, was turned into a palace by the medieval kings of Aragon, and much later into a... More

This museum goes on and on. My husband and I bought ticket at the main entrance. We arrived by cruise ship and I was startled at how many people gave up the opportunity to view this massive archeological site. The elevator took us to the very top of the museum/cathedral in which we had the birds eye view of Tarragonia.... More

One can enter in this museum either from main entrance or from the History museum. More convenient - from history museum, where you can also climb at the top of the tower and have a good look at the city and the sea. Entrance fee is 3,30 euros per person. You will sea a short film about the history of... More

The Roman Circus is a truly remarkable monument located in the ancient city of Tarragon built in first century BC and then rebuilt by the Kings of Aragon in the middle ages. It is a must see.

The realisation of just how little is left drives home how impressive Roman Tarragona must have been. Great views, well laid out. Don't miss the CGI video showing the whole circus!

We loved this place but we do really like historical site. There are lots of things to look at including underground rooms and a wicked audio visual video that shows you what it would have looked like overlaid with current sites. There are plenty of photo opportunities if you make the effort to climb the stairs at the far end... More

If you are a Roman history buff then this is a great site. Tarragona has done well with making their sites easily accessible and interesting. It is close to the museums and Amphitheatre so all can be done collectively in a relatively short period of time.
