  • in the end we cannot see the basilica, because just when we arrived they were closing it, were 3 o'clock, and in the Tourist Office say that does not close

  • It is a visit if you like the story, you will enjoy it... If not, I'm afraid that it bored you. For starters, the church opens only in mass schedule... the crypt that is also in the tourist voucher, is curious, since you see remains of several times, from Visigothic, Roman and Arab remains. .. .this closed Sundays and public holidays. And out of the recited, you find the Hornito. .. .that is a chapel for pilgrims did not have to enter the Church and prayed to Santa Eulalia at any time... Santa Eulalia Patron Saint and protective of the city of Merida, which was tortured by them Roman by be Christian. A curiosity of this temple, is that is considered the first church that was built in the peninsula... The church building on the ruins of the Temple of worship to the Roman God "MARS"... A place of history and curiosities that will not leave you indifferent...

  • Beautiful church of the 4th century and Visigoth period, built in the 13th century. Has a beautiful underground crypt.

  • Excellent set of very well-preserved temples. The place has a special magic.

  • An impressive Roman complex under the lower Basilica of Santa Eulalia. Remains of the Roman temple dedicated to Mars, the early Christian Basilica, and the Roman necropolis. In addition there are Visigoths remains. Along with the xenodoquio, it forms a unique complex.

  • The Roman remains that are under the basilica are very well explained and it is very interesting. If these in Merida is worth visiting them. With regard to the basilica itself was closed and it was impossible to see it so I can not say, but if you have the remains below, should give it to the city and be visited as serious cultural place made with any other building.

  • A work of 10. Brutal the work of discovering the remains and keep them open to visitors under the floor of the Church today. Phenomenal effort educational show the different strata. Panels, dioramas... The best.

  • It seems totally impossible under this church we can find a set of Roman remains.
