Another great Roman ruin to be found in this amazing area. The amazing condition provides you with a great opportunity to see and feel how this place was. A must see attraction and included in the same ticket as the theatre at a reasonable €12

Signage explained the types of gladiators that fought in this amphitheater. Very interesting. Right next to the theater.

The Amphitheatre is together with the Roman Theatre the main tourist spot of Merida and quite crowded with people. It is quite beautiful, you can walk around and there are a lot of explanations.

I was blown away by the city of Merida. I came for a special birthday treat and as I love history and historical buildings this seemed to fit the bill. Merida was on the Roman route through Spain and still has many structures from that...More
