Amazing and in surprisingly good condition. Worth a trip to Merida for this one sight alone. Its proximity to the Amphitheatre is a bonus. Buy a ticket that gets you into most of the main sites.

Beautifully preserved and well worth a visit. Merida has taken a lot of trouble to preserve their Roman heritage throughout the town.

Who needs a live show? This Roman theatre is arguably the best-preserved of all, having been excavated only 100 years ago.The marble 'skin' was purloined long ago, but the stone skeleton is huge and impressive. The statues of Ceres, Persephone etc are replicas, but you can see the originals in the nearby museum. Inspiring.

Apart from the other attractions in Merida this was our favourite.The theatre is amazing not in only the history but how the whole site is portrayed.As soon as you enter and follow the recomended paths you get the feeling that time has stood still here.It is all well documented and posted,and maintained to the highest standard.The signs are in english...

If you can only see one site in town, this is it! Entry is combined with the colosseum. Signs are in English. For 12 euros per adult you get a combined admission to six different sites. This is by far number one!

There is a park not far from the center of town which contains this Roman theater. You can walk about it as you wish, it is nearly complete. A great find

This is the second time we have tried to find this poorly marketed place. This time we found it. What an amazing place. Such an awe inspiring well preserved building. Full of atmosphere and beautiful. Also excellent descriptions in English. You must visit this place.

In addition to the fact that this is a well preserved Roman theatre, the explanations in Spanish and English are helpful and interesting. We bought a combined ticket to see the museum as well.
