Another wonderful spectacle in Merida! Easy to walk around and you can go onto the arena and try to visualise all that went on here! Good descriptions of various gladiators are provided.

This place is a must for all visitors to Merida. Beautifully preserved and full of interesting angles for the amature photographer. A good spot for families as the kids will also find it interesting and have space to play around.

Not as crowded as ruins in Italy - you can really imagine the townspeople using this facility centuries ago. Try to have a guide.
