The Roman Circus of Tarragona is one of the most important places in our visit of Tarragona, one of the most interesting Archaeological sites and one of the most well preserved of the old Roman Empire.
Created during I A.D. this place played a huge role (leisure of course) during the empire domain
here was the place were carriages races pulled by horses were held. It had a capacity of 20.000 spectators.

We have a Roman circus in my town. It is the only one in Britain. I am travelling to Tarragona next year and am definitely going to see your circus. Can we arrange to be twin circus towns and to share information?

T2 No smoking and no other food shops
Really not happy with this airport. Travel assisstance takes forever to get to you, language barriers and you're not advised of any area restrictions or limitations before during or after security. Security rush you through with"""rapidos"" which honestly made me want to cry with all the attention while struggling with a toddler in pushchair and autistic elder child . To find out then travel assistance don't stay with you, they leave and come back just before boarding if they bother to. Can't smoke or buy any other food other than sandwiches which where spotted with black bits?? Cant smoke after security. the last leg of our holiday and its been shite

The textile museum is now located in the Design Museum, and it’s just costumes. There is no technical information about textile production or creation. Be warned that there are NO EXHIBITS pre-1550.

  2. Romen Circus - Jduith Zayas-Bazan (27 Jul 2006 - 16:20)

    I lived in Torredembarra, Tarragona for 10 years (now I live in the U.S.A) and I remember the circus, I love Roman architecture (not much here in the U.S).
    I hope to soon go back. But we need pictures that would be great.
    Thank you.
