Ancient Emerita Augusta - theatre and amphitheatre, Roman aqueducts, old stone bridge, alcazaba, circus, ancient houses and temples - it all sums up and allowed Merida to enter the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Merida must have one of the most original and restored Roman group of buildings in Spain I would think.

We arrived mid to late afternoon and spent the next few hours seeing as many sights as possible. While it was possible to do so, a more relaxed exploration could have been better! A word of advice if buying the combined ticket... on Sunday/Monday the museum is closed and during the July performance season the visit to the Teatro is a bit restricted.

Another tip... if visiting during July, take in a performance at the Teatro!

We spent the next morning visiting the 2 aqueducts and the circus...so we pretty much fit it all in.

We planned two nights with one full day to explore town but now wish we had had at least one more. Mostly because the heat beat us and we had to retreat indoors for a few hours in the afternoon-consequently we didn't see all we'd have liked to. Merida is a small rural city-the capital of the autonomous region of Extremadura- and is full bursting with Roman ruins> our apartment in the old city centre was located between the temple of Diana and the Portico del Foro. Other monuments were also just a walk away. The town is also full of restaurants, tapas and interesting shops. It's easy to get lost but fun finding your way. We loved it,

Narrow streets, modern shops shut for siesta but open when it's cooler. Plenty of ruins some requiring a ticket others are just free to see.

The historical centre of Merida is not very big, you can easily walk around, but take your time, there are many nice spots, some Roman ruins alongside modern shops and many bars and restaurants. Several streets are car-free.

merida is built on roman history.
When they dig for any reason, they discover the past and really the mix is very well done

Mérida is a wonderful city of history: Roman, Visigothis, Arab and more recent Spanish. There are some very well preserved ruins from Roman times as this was an important city. The impressive bridge, the acqueducts, the ruins of houses right beneath the modern Government of Extremadura building. Of course, the theatre, amphitheatre, Roman art museum all add to make this a history lover's dream come true.

We visited the city of Mérida in the middle of Emerita Lúdica, a party in which almost everyone dresses up as a Roman and brings to life the great ruins of the ancient city, and shows them in an alternative and fun way. We had no idea of finding the city like this, and without any complexes we went to one of the numerous stores in the center and bought some costumes to turn our visit into a period experience. In the two days we spent there, we didn't have a great time. We discovered that by being dressed as Romans the visits to all the temples and museums were free, so it more than made up for the price of the costumes. We entered all the places dressed in period clothing for free, and not only that, we saw recreations of all kinds..., slave sales, legion parade, weapons workshops, etc...
Seeing the city like this for the first time was an experience that I will never forget.

We only stayed two days and we sure had a lot to see. The entire city itself is spectacular. It's like a little Rome. We loved it
