You need to go inside to appreciate the true extent of this complex. You can see quite a lot from the outside but not everything. The tunnels were amazing.

Do not expect to find a Roman circus with their quadrigas. But you will find a wider tunnel which goes below the old grandstands an d one of the circus towers. The archaeological site is even better than the Circus of Rome and gives you...More

Really good value for money. Children free and adults $3.30 each easy 1-2 hours kids loved all the little underground rooms

Starting at the circus, sadly truncated by more recent over-building, the curators try to make up for the history of disrespect for Roman history with really quite good artists’ impressions and useful explanation. And, given their handicap, succeed. The tour then becomes more impressive with...More

The structures that have been preserved tell the story of Tarragona from Roman through the war years in Spain. The tunnells have great autovisual presentation , no words needed.

Well preserved Roman ruins. Lots of tunnels, etc. Very close to the amphitheatre (approx 200 yards). Give yourself 2 hours. This is the starting point and recommend buying the ticket to all-the-Roman-ruins here. They offer a family price that was quite reasonable.

This ancient circus or end of the stadium is OK but if you want to see a complete stadium visit Greece or Turkey. It was worth a look.

Fabulous views from the top, and lots of interesting things to read as you make your way round. A great way to spend an afternoon.

We did not know about this site when we visited Tarragona, but there is the semi circle of the end of the chariot track and in a far better state of preservation than the equivalent in Rome. Pretty awesome.
