Merida is relatively unknown, yet it has extensive Roman ruins, a Roman circus, a museum filled with Roman mosaics and archaeological finds and a parador set in a former convent . We spent a couple of days here last summer and it was a real adventure.

If you love history and want to go back 2000 years to the Roman empire period this is the best place in the Iberian Peninsula. The theater and the small circus are very beautiful and peaceful and you can feel all the dramas lived here.

For anyone interested in Rome and the Romans, the Roman Theatre here is really incredible and one of the best I have seen. I can only imagine what it must have been like in it's heyday!! Right next door is the amphitheatre which is also worth a visit, if only to see the Roman speed bumps!

Mérida has a lot of great Roman ruins. This Teatro Romano was impressive and reminds me of being in Rome at the Forum. It is well preserved for being 2,000 years old.

I planned my visit to Merida just to see the Roman ruins here and was I blown away by this theatre - it's preservation is indicative of the quality of ancient Roman engineering. In its entirety Emerita/Merida is a relatively small site but i could have easily spent a day here (if you've read any of my other reviews I'm... More

As impressive as the Library of Ephesus in Turkey, the columns of the Teatro Romano in Mérida leave one in awe. The entire theater, statues and all (originals now in the museum nearby) is one of the better Roman theater ruins we've visited. If you're visiting Extremadura make it a point to visit these Roman ruins.

As a Roman and Greek history enthusiastic I might admit this is the best theatre I've visited. It's really impressive and very well preserved, specially the scene and the marble columns.

In this place you can feel the greatness of the Roman Empire. It is reaaly well preserved and it is really beautiful. Take some time to enjoy all of the beauty and dimension of the Theater. The Theather is also really close to other Roman Monumentos and to the city center.
