Another great Roman ruin to be found in this amazing area. The amazing condition provides you with a great opportunity to see and feel how this place was. A must see attraction and included in the same ticket as the theatre at a reasonable €12

The Amphitheatre is together with the Roman Theatre the main tourist spot of Merida and quite crowded with people. It is quite beautiful, you can walk around and there are a lot of explanations.
