Well worth a visit
Feb 2020
This was a real find. It is still being excavated and I'm sure that there will be more interesting finds in the years ahead. What is on display now is impressive in its own right. It is well laid out (under cover) and there are more than enough information boards to give you a clear guide.

Very large Roman Villa
Mar 2020
On a day of exploring Merida we came across this archaeological site. Although the name on the tourist map (Case de Mitreo" is misleading because it implies a connection to Mithras - apparently there was a Mithrian found under the bull ring, the connection with this villa in tenuous! The remains of the villa are extensive, with three atriums, and many rooms, some underground presumably to get away from the heat in summer. There are the remains of a bathouse next to the site. Many of the walls have still got the remains of paint on them and the remains of floor mosaics still convey the wealth of this site. There is even a female figure adorned with a bikini! Really well worth a visit.

Just for the mosaics
Jan 2019
The roman house from the 2nd century - the whole area is covered with roof and the most important part is the mosaico cosmologico representing Heaven, Earth and the sea. In my opinion not worth the single entry of EUR 6 (unless you're an archeology freak), but if you have combined ticket (EUR 15) and you're not in a rush, it can be visited in spare time.

Large Roman Villa still be excavated.
Aug 2019
This was a really nice find. A large Roman villa where the work still continues to excavate it. Beautiful partial painted walls, tile floors and good story boards in English telling what the rooms were used for and when. Take your time and see everything. Very informative and interesting

A very large Roman villa complex which is still being excavated. Good information boards around in English. The mosaics are quite difficult to fully appreciate as the walkways are raised and not always very close to them.

Poor visual aids for English

Came here as it's part of the see all ticket price of €15. There's some nice mosaics but nothing in English and my phone e translator couldn't pick up the cards as they were in the sun. The funery items and mausoleums were a nice touch though

Visit of the historical centre of Merida.
Jul 2018 • Solo
This location in Merida is known as the “Casa Del Mitreo” this because of its proximity to the remains of a possible temple dedicated to Mitra, which appeared on the site occupied by the bullring. The bullring is next to the location, you will pass it when coming to the House of the Mitreo. Some of its structures and decorations are from later dates due to the renovations passing over several centuries. Its dependencies are distributed around three patios and are providing light and ventilation. It is paved with one of the most interesting mosaics that appeared in the city: the Cosmological Mosaic. Coming to the end of the visit, please take your time to visit the “Area Funeraria de los Colombarios” it is need to see all this and doing so you will have seen the complete site.

Unless you have lots of time, don't bother.

This might be a bit unfair but, unless you have lots of time, don't bother (or just look at it from the street). The problem is that Merida has so many amazing sights so this one just loses out.

Still interesting but poorly done...

A vist here is included on the combined ticket. While worth the visit, it is not possible to enjoy it thoroughly without the ability to read Español.

When we visited in 2006 there was signage in English. Today, Spanish only and blank spaces. WHY? Absolutely useless without some sort of written Guide or an audio-guide. Of course none of these either!!!!!
And the staff- words fail me, but they should be relocated to a situation where they do not represent Merida.
