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?

Hi Jennie, Fifteen days before finding an entrance ticket for the Sagrada Familia or Park Güell is quite normal at this time of year, as we are entering the high season. To ensure that visits are enjoyable for all, the overall number of visitors is limited. Our tip : opt for tickets with guided tour, often available during peak periods Best, .

  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.
