“Very intriguing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is one of the many Roman era attractions in Mérida, the capital city of Extremadura. The town was founded by retired military from Augustus army in 25 BC. The remains of the theatre and those of the amphitheatre are side by side. A 12 euro entrance fee gets you into both as well as into a few other sites around the city. It is worth the price to wander the grounds and be immersed in what life was like 2000 years ago.

“An excellent case of Roman architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

Merida is a very nice city to visit, but the Roman ruins are a must visit, the theatre is the best of all but overall if you like archeology and roman antiquities this is a must.

“Beautiful walk through history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

walking around the site you can almost imagine people sitting in the stands and watching a performance. If I get a chance I would like to return during the summer months when performances are scheduled.

“Terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

We came to Merida to see the ruins (despite having lived in Rome for several years) and we weren't disappointed. The entry ticket covered about 5 locations - all worth seeing.
