Really interesting visit. Nice to see some perfect excavations of ancient Roman times. There's also a cemetery towards the back which is really worth a look.

The archeological remains of the Mitreo House are really worth seeing as original pavements and mural painting can be seen. Watching the ruins you can imagine how the house should have been along Roman epoch. Worth visiting if you love history.

This is far from the other sites in Merida, and not really worth the walk. Plus once you get in the grounds and walk to see the tombs, you have to exit the same way you entered, so another long walk back.

All the Roman ruins are well worth a visit in Merida, you can buy one ticket for 15€ that covers the entrance to all the important ones and you can see the others on route. Well looked after and presented, unlike the town itself.
