Merida was founded by the Romans as Emerita Augusta, the capitol of the province of Lusitania, and in that capacity it boasted terrific facilities endemic to any large Roman city. The amphitheater is one of the best preserved. It's a terrific site.

This set of Ancient Roman remains is awe-inspiring! With so much of it intact, it’s difficult to believe it wasn’t uncovered until 1910. It was a magnificent job of, not only, finding this site, but also cleaning it up to the current status. While viewing the stage, I could almost try to envision one of Seneca’s tragedies or comedies being acted out. Not being an expert in acting, I think some of today’s techniques, like “an aside” actually come these Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman plays. It was a job well done and very much worth a visit by anyone!

Note, some of the published photos are of the adjacent Roman theatre. This is the amphitheatre when helpful guide boards explain in Spanish and English what went on at the amphitheatre.
It is remarkably ‘complete’. You can walk through the tunnels spectators would have used to get to their seats, or those used by the gladiators to get into the arena.
Allow at least half an hour, and be sure to buy a comb8ned ticket at the box office to get entrance to 6-7 key sites at a much reduced price. All the sites are relatively close together and can be seen in a couple of days

It was amazing to walk to this place and find yourself in the middle of so much history. Walk to the center and admire the amazing architecture.

Impressive, as most of the main monuments in Mérida. I actually recommend the combined ticket to visit them all. Maybe the only advice would be to avoid the hot days in the summer. But, on the other hand, you have less people around those days (which is better during the COVID-19 era).

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.
