Description

Be transported back to 8 B.C. To bouts between gladiators, animals and man versus beast. All these performances were held in the amphitheatre. Located next to the renowned Mérida Theatre, it comprises stands, split into three sectors, and two tribunes. The authorities would sit on one of the platforms. The other was reserved for those financing for the show. The gladiators would enter through two long galleries. A surprising feature is the large central pit in the arena.
