Mad about the Romans!

I mean i acknowledge the Romans could be pretty nasty and get up to all sorts but i am pretty mad about history and all these historical sites from hundreds and thousands of years ago and guess have been chasing them all around Europe.
Here I am in Merida on my tour around to see a bit more of Spain on another Andalucia and the must sees of Spain, incorporating Sierra Morena with the spring flower scene i am also mad about!

Former capital of the Roman province of Lusitania!

This place contains more roman remains than any other city in Spain - so this place has the works! from engineering works to domestic villas with cemetaries, temples, entertainment venues such as ampitheatres and theatres, roman fortresses, aqueducts, bridges and hippodrome.

10th city of the Roman Empire

The final stop on the Roman road which began in northern castile.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:lots of excellent roman ruins and evidence of life a couple of thousand years ago here!
  • Cons:Parking can be difficult when Merida is full of visitors, one way street system for pedestrians means strategic planning of parking required.
  • In a nutshell:for roman ruin and history buffs its excellent!

    We had trouble finding the way to our hotel in the centre of Merida ! But not the way out again. Did you take any pics - would like to see them.
