about Tarragona Amphitheatre
Tarragona Amphitheatre (Anfiteatro Romano de Tarragona) is a second century AD construction in Spain which would once have played host to the pastimes of the Ancient Romans, particularly to gladiatorial battles.
It was probably built during the reign of Trajan or Hadrian. At the time, Tarragona Amphitheatre was part of the Roman city of Tarraco, the remains of which are a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The elliptical structure and seating plan of Tarragona Amphitheatre can still be seen. It would once have held up to 14,000 spectators.
Tarragona Amphitheatre was in use until the fourth century, after which it was abandoned. Later, a sixth century basilica and a twelfth century gothic church were built on the site and the remains of which can be seen today.
