you probably will not come to Tarragona to see this, but if you are here anyway, then why not. The entrance is included in the combined ticket for the four UNESCO sites.

It's beautiful to see and definitely worth the walk. It was included in our combined ticket of 7.50 euros so it's good value for money.

Chanced upon this place. Very ruined! Surrounded by modern buildings with a road running through the middle which you cross via a footbridge. Part of the 4 on our joint admission ticket.

A bit of a walk, but you can call in on the Mercat Central de, Plaça de Corsini on the way there or on the way back. This is a bit lack lustre and a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, its historic, but when you...More

Amazing that this has survived with a road through the middle and buildings all around. One can stand there and imagine what it, and Tarragona, must have been like in Roman times. Worth a visit.

This is a great, almost hidden, site. There are information placards spaced all throughout the remains to provide information on the site. The site itself is just incredible. It does not need to take a long time to view if you are pressed for time,...More

More jaw dropping by far than the Forum is the fact that some moron put a road through the middle! This is a small site with limited amounts left standing but enough to give an impression.

From all Roman highlights in Tarragona, this disappointed me the most. Not much to see and very poorly preserved. Some parts are really dirty and smelly, not what you expect from a world heritage site.

After visiting the old town in Tarragona, where all sites are one close to each other, this is slightly out of the centre, but still within walking distance. Site is rather small but accessible with ticket only. Entry at the west end of ruins.
