The amphitheater of Tarragona is a Roman building of ancient Tarraco that is currently preserved relatively restored. Its management depends on the Museum of History of Tarragona. It is part of the archaeological site of Tarraco, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is considered as a Cultural Good of National Interest. The amphitheater was built in the southeast of the city of Tarraco, outside the walled site south of the Augusta road, by the sea and near the gateway to the city. The existence of the amphitheater shows the importance achieved by Tarraco within the set of colonies of the Empire. In fact, Tarraco was one of the few cities in Hispania where an amphitheater was built when there was already a circus and a theater, a privilege that only had the main cities of the Empire.
