What is in Merida?

June 11, 2009

Merida is an interesting town because it takes at most half an hour to walk to any point in the city, assuming you don’t take the long way.  Even when we went to the bus station to get tickets to Merida from Sevilla the attendant asked What is in Merida?  Still we stopped there and in terms of architecture this city has some pretty interesting buildings.  We started the day in Plaza de Espana.

From there we headed up to the National Museum of Roman Art.  On the way we passed the Templo de Diana, an ancient Roman temple that is currently being restored.

After the National Museum of Roman Art we headed over to the Roman Amphitheater and Theater.  That was the end of our day in Merida.
