This is certainly worth a walk by and there is no cost. It is not as impressive as the temple or the forums in other cities.

This, like the Diana Temple located 1 minute away, are free to see and admire. The romans left a huge footprint in Merida and this is just another of those examples. Old statues, old pillars. You will most likely be in walking distance of it...More

If you are visiting the center of Merida, the Forum is easily walkable from the Templo de Diana or the The Amphitheatre, and helps complete the historical picture of Roman Merida.

An interesting site to see on the way to the Temple of Diana. It gives some sense of the centre of social life in the city and has good explanation, but limited in scope
