One of the "must-see" views in Tarragona

If you happen to visit Tarragona for a very short time, without a doubt, the "Balcón del Mar", Amfiteatre and the coast/beach are the "must-visit" places.

Spent the day in this city-well worth visiting. Don't miss the tunnel. Stayed in Airbnb in the next town & took bus.

I think I took 20 photos of the ruins of the Roman Amphitheatre from different angles and in different sunlight - it was that impressive. It sits right off the Mediterranean so the background is spectacular. We went on a Monday when the museums were closed (which probably kept the crowd size small), so could not walk down into the...

This is a fantastic Roman amphitheatre, set adjacent to the sea and below the famous Mediterranean Balcony promenade. It looks stunning. We didn't have time to go inside and there is an admission charge, but if you can, you should visit.

This is just one of a number of Roman sites you can visit in Tarragona. It is wise to buy a package admission ticket which will allow you to tour the Circus, the Wall and the Amfiteatre for just over 7 euros. The Visigoth cathedral in the middle of the amfitheatre really gives a sense of the history of Tarragona.... More

Definitely worth a visit, the amphitheatre shows you pretty well what a Roman entertainment venue looks like. Very obvious are the Visigothis basilica and early Christian church which were built on top of it. Be very aware that much of this is a recreation, though ... the only original Roman stonework in place are the four pillars at the arena... More

The ampthi theatre is situated just in front of the sea which creates a beautiful setting. You can almost imagine the ancient Greeks and Romans performing at sunset. Worth a visit but remember that it is not open on a Monday. Not easily accessible to the disabled, wear sunscreen on a hot day as there is little shade. Also wear... More
