Built by General Agrippa in the year 15 B.C...it is the World´s best conserved and the only one which, after being reconditioned, continues to be the setting for theatrical representations and recitals. You can´t miss it and enjoy a play during the summer!!

Excellent experience to see both amphitheatre and theatre in the same place. Highly recommended and worth the ticket price

This is a beautiful old Roman theatre in the middle of Merida. We enjoyed our visit very much! Don't go in the middle of the day because it can be hot.

When you see the Teatro, you just go "Wow". To think how long ago it was built and how much of it survives is really amazing.

Increadible well preserved theatre. It is great to enter the main gate and feel like a gladiator when standing in the middle. Impressive.

This theater is still used for performances, and there was a festival of theater occuring when I visited. The acoustics are still wonderful, and the whole atmosphere is just spectacular - the age of this building and the still good condition it is in is amazing.

We came here in the morning to walk around the theatre and see the stage from different angles before it started getting really hot. And we came back in the evening for a 10.45 pm performance of Aristophanes' Frogs. which we had booked in June (2 senior tickets @ 31.50 each). The acoustics are stunning, but you really have to...

We rented a car during our visit to Madrid mainly to see these sites. These are wonderful ruins and well worth the visit. If you are anywhere in this part of Spain you HAVE to visit these ruins. Plan to spend several hours there and get a guide book or an audio guide to help out.

Unlike Pompeii, you can go all over this theater as well as the amphitheater next to it. Nice example of what they did for public toilets as well. I'd say it is well worth the admission cost. Ticket did NOT include the Roman Museum next to it.
