This and the Theatre were the reason we visited Merida and we were certainly not disappointed. Not crowded and easy to go from this to the Theatre. We were even able to claim a 50% reduction for being EU pensionistas, need to make the most...More

An amazing sight, huge amphitheatre ... absolutely breathtaking. If you go to Merida, you do not want to miss this! If you see nothing else, visit this!

We arrived mid morning and after some messing about parking (ended up by the football ground nearby) we opted for the €15 ticket that covers you for all the pay to enter sites in the city. It's €12 just for the Theatre/Amphitheatre complex. If you...More

This is a well-preserved amphitheater with some details that you would not find very often in other antique amphitheaters, such as the remnants of a central pool that could be used for aquatic "games". Well preserved are also the subterranean spaces, where animals and gladiators...More

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I enjoyed Merida more than Rome. Less crowds, the sites are not as spectacularly large but you get more access here than in Rome I found. In the amphitheater you could access almost any...More

I'm baffled that some people were not impressed with this site. We went on a gorgeous day and shared the site with maybe 10 other tourists. It resulted in a quiet and almost intimate walk through 2000 year old ruins that I cannot imagine replicating...More

The self guided brochure explains the building and all around the suggested walk there are boards to explain each part of it and what went on with some excellent life size gladiators to explain the different roles of each one.

If I had seen only this than my review could've been different, but the theater next to it is really amazing. In comparison, the amphitheater was "just" great. I like that not all was restored so one can get an idea of how it was,...More

This was both gruesome and handsome as a public arena. Over 2,000 years old, the amphitheater held deadly sporting events regularly, including mortal combat between gladiators, wild animals versus gladiators. We could see the area where the animals were kept until their release into the...More
