Teatro Romano de Merida, Merida

(4.8/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
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 truth is that we had never previously raised us visit Mérida. The truth that was a gift from my partner, and after the first day of visit I have to say that it was undoubtedly a wise decision. The Roman Theatre of Mérida is without doubt, the best representative of all the monuments you'll find in Mérida. To arrive and begin to glimpse such beauty reminded me walks in Imperial Rome and that moment I knew that Mérida had me in love. Definitely a place to visit at least once in life.
