How much time would we need to visit all of the ruins in Merida?

I am planning to stop in Merida on my way from Lisbon to Madrid. How much time do I need to see the Roman ruins? Do I need to stay the night? Thanks!

As most people have recommended, I would agree that an overnight stay is worth it. There are many things to see and do and obviously trying the local food is part of the experience of travel. Enjoy!

The roof is missing, the beds have gone and the swim rooms dried out 2000 years ago.
