This place is a must for all visitors to Merida. Beautifully preserved and full of interesting angles for the amature photographer. A good spot for families as the kids will also find it interesting and have space to play around.

Not as crowded as ruins in Italy - you can really imagine the townspeople using this facility centuries ago. Try to have a guide.

This can be visited in combination with the Roman theatre. A very sizable place with a few explanations. A bit more background info could be expected for the expensive entry fee.

We visited the amphitheatre as part of the combined ticket. Not as spectacular as the Teatro but still worth a view.
