A well preserved view into Roman history and the life of a gladiator. The site is well worth a visit.

All part of the larger display, all of which is magnificent. The sheer size and complexity of the site is overwhelming. A must see on any visit to Spain

You would not expect a relatively small city, such as Merida is now, to hold such intesting remains. The Amphitheatre is quite a sight though I don't know how much it was restored. Well worth a visit

The amphitheatre was built in the year 8 BC. It was intended for gladiatorial fights and combats between men and beasts. The stands had capacity of roughly 15 thousand spectators. The main arena is 64x44 metres. It forms a complex with Teatro Romano, but is as impressive as the theatre itself.
