Mérida’s preserved Roman theatre
Visit some of Mérida’s key Roman sights. Augustus founded the city in 25BC and the many reminders of this rule include the beautifully preserved Roman theatre. The Merida Roman Theatre is one of the most impressive of the ruins of this former colony of the Roman Empire. Together, these ruins, which include Guadiana Bridge and Merida Amphitheatre, form the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Archaeological Ensemble of Mérida.
