Came here as it's part of the see all ticket price of €15. There's some nice mosaics but nothing in English and my phone e translator couldn't pick up the cards as they were in the sun. The funery items and mausoleums were a nice touch though

This location in Merida is known as the “Casa Del Mitreo” this because of its proximity to the remains of a possible temple dedicated to Mitra, which appeared on the site occupied by the bullring. The bullring is next to the location, you will pass it when coming to the House of the Mitreo. Some of its structures and decorations are from later dates due to the renovations passing over several centuries. Its dependencies are distributed around three patios and are providing light and ventilation. It is paved with one of the most interesting mosaics that appeared in the city: the Cosmological Mosaic. Coming to the end of the visit, please take your time to visit the “Area Funeraria de los Colombarios” it is need to see all this and doing so you will have seen the complete site.

This might be a bit unfair but, unless you have lots of time, don't bother (or just look at it from the street). The problem is that Merida has so many amazing sights so this one just loses out.

A vist here is included on the combined ticket. While worth the visit, it is not possible to enjoy it thoroughly without the ability to read Español.

When we visited in 2006 there was signage in English. Today, Spanish only and blank spaces. WHY? Absolutely useless without some sort of written Guide or an audio-guide. Of course none of these either!!!!!
And the staff- words fail me, but they should be relocated to a situation where they do not represent Merida.

We dropped in as our last of the roam sites visited in Merida. We parked up by the bull ring and then walked down. The excavations have revealed painted walls and mosaic floors and even that the Romans had habitable basements....

It is a nice walk from the Roman theater and you can check out the bullring across the street while you are there. It is nicely laid out.

This was a pleasant enough visit and was included in our collective ticket. All the explanations were in Spanish only, and the drawings weren't always easy to follow. There was a big piece of land at the end of which was an exhibition of funeral customs etc.

Nothing big or impressive, but nice to see if you are in the area. The information is all in Spanish, so if you don’t speak Spanish, prepare your visit before or have your translator app ready.

Entry to the Casa, one of the most easterly sights in Merida, is 6€, but this includes access to the adjoining Columbarios area, and both are included in the 15€ see-all tickets.

We liked the Casa, which has some splendid mosaics and features, but many of these are not shown off to best effect, and the mosaics could do with a clean - even a good sweep would help! There is a raised walkway round the outside of the house, but the explanatory notices are only in Spanish, and some of these are not in great condition.
