What to see Its monuments, which bring Mérida's Roman past to life. The flagship is the Roman Theatre, but be sure to visit the Amphitheatre, the Temple of Diana, the Circus, Casa del Mirtreo House and Trajan's Arch, among others. On the outskirts, the more notable examples are the Roman Bridge, one of the largest of its period, and Los Milagros Aqueduct. And to learn all about life in a city of the Roman Empire, we recommend the National Museum of Roman Art. The building was designed by architect Rafael Moneo. There are also examples of later Arabic architecture. The finest is the Alcazaba (Arab citadel). Right next door you can visit the Conventual Santiaguista. Mérida is a key stop-off point on the Silver Route and is close to many fascinating towns and cities, such as Alange, Almendralejo, Cáceres, Plasencia and Zafra. If you fancy a trip to the countryside, we suggest going to Monfragüe National Park. Festivities The star event is the Festival of Classical Theatre, which is held every summer. Many plays and performances are held throughout the city and we especially recommend attending those at the Roman Theatre. It is also famous for its Easter celebrations, most notably the Vía Crucis procession.
