This location in Merida is known as the “Casa Del Mitreo” this because of its proximity to the remains of a possible temple dedicated to Mitra, which appeared on the site occupied by the bullring. The bullring is next to the location, you will pass...More

This might be a bit unfair but, unless you have lots of time, don't bother (or just look at it from the street). The problem is that Merida has so many amazing sights so this one just loses out.

A vist here is included on the combined ticket. While worth the visit, it is not possible to enjoy it thoroughly without the ability to read Español.

Nothing big or impressive, but nice to see if you are in the area. The information is all in Spanish, so if you don’t speak Spanish, prepare your visit before or have your translator app ready.

Entry to the Casa, one of the most easterly sights in Merida, is 6€, but this includes access to the adjoining Columbarios area, and both are included in the 15€ see-all tickets. We liked the Casa, which has some splendid mosaics and features, but many...More
