Teatro Romano de Merida, Merida

(2,600+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
Initially built for gladiatorial combat in the year 8 BCE, lets you explore an amphitheater that once held battles between beasts, men, and the combination of the two. View the stands that had a carrying capacity of 15,000 spectators, and roam around the well-preserved walls that used to house these battles. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993, the site offers a wealth of history. The amphitheater is used for modern performances as well, so plan ahead to combine both visits if you would like to experience the arena in action. Teatro Romano de Merida is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Merida Edition.

  • The place is impressive by its Majesty. And the acoustics, which can be heard from the central part of the stage to the furthest seat in the top tier. The surrounding area also offers a pleasant walk that us back to that time. The visit is worth without a doubt.

  • Impacted by conservation, the State is wonderful, if the people of Spain knew what we would not go both on the outside and we be more here. The price from €15 to see everything, it is a bonus. I recommend a visitor to Mérida.
