The Puente Romano to this old City is in great condition and if you start from here, sets the scene beautifully. Merida must be one of the best cities to visit in Spain, the number of splendid Roman ruins dotted around the city, all within...More

we entered Merida on foot over this incredibly well preserved Roman bridge (I can remember when road vehicles used it!) No better way to enter any city. PS: call it 'Puente' and not 'Punto'!
