This was the purpose of our visit to Merida and well worth the journey. The ampitheatre is relatively well preserved. We bought the multi-attraction ticket which for 3 euros extra was well worth the additional cost if you are planning to visit more than one...More

Interesting place, probably a "must-see" when you are in Extremadura, so they charge 12 Euros, or 15 for the conjoint - but the other places of the conjoint are not easy to find. Terrible map!

This may not be the best preserved Roman amfitheatre in the world, it is certainly one of the most impressive ones. It is also very accessible. The walking route takes you right through all the interesting places. It is next to some of the other...More

This was a cool Roman ruin to wander around. We arrived early (9am) on a nice September morning, and saw almost no one. You should definitely check it out.

Accessible for most people. Less for people with wheelchair (us) but we saw most of it. Well restored with good explanations of its use for gladiatorfights

I had recently read an article about gladiatorial fighting in Roman times. Apparently it all got very ugly and one day a monk (whose name I cannot recall, alas) stepped between two fighters and got killed. It was such a terrible sight that the sport...More

If you have enjoyed Ephesus then Merida in Spain should be on your list. An amphitheatre, theatre, museum, chariot racing ring, aqueducts, all in a town full of 2,000 year old ruins and artefacts. There are shows at the amphitheatre. And when you visit during...More
