  • Main attraction in Tarragona and close to Train Station and beach. An ancient Roman arena well preserved with some remains of old churches too. It is inside a small park too. Need to pay to get inside (buy the ticket for €7.40 which allows to visit more attractions). On the top of park you have better views of it.
