Travel Tips for Mérida

Strange invasive plant

by hojasdehierba

Since a few months ago, it has appeared a strange plant in Guadiana river. Its name is camalote and It is said to come from Amazonia, but nobody knows why it is here now. The problem is that is growing really fast, almost invading some parts of the river. Just give a look at the pic.

Desde hace unos cuantos meses, ha aparecido una extraña planta en el rio Guadiana. Su nombre es camalote y se dice que viene del Amazonas, pero nadie sabe por que esta aqui ahora. El problema es que esta creciendo muy rapido, casi invadiendo algunas partes del rio. Echadle una ojeada a la foto.

Los Milagros Aqueduct

by hojasdehierba

It was built on the Ist century, with a cement structure, covered with brick and granite. It was said to bring water from Proserpina Lake to Merida (about 5 kms.), although only the urban part of the aqueduct was elevated from the land, to save the uphill to Proserpina Lake. It's not so well preserved as the San Lazaro Aqueduct, but, in my opinión is more beautiful and interesting than that one.

Se construyó en el siglo I d.C. con una estructura de hormigón cubierta con ladrillo y granito. Parece ser que llevaba agua desde el Lago Proserpina hasta Merida (unos 5 kms.), aunque solo la parte urbana del acueducto esta elevada sobre el suelo, para salvar el desnivel hasta el lago Proserpina. No está tan bien conservado como el Acueducto de San Lázaro, pero, en mi opinión es más bonito e interesante que este.

Museo de Arte Romano

by hojasdehierba

If you are going to visit Merida, the Roman Art Museum is definitely a must. Most of the original sculptures found in excavations are here. So, what you are going to see all around Merida streets are mainly copies: originals are shown here. Moreover, it houses huge and impressive mosaics, coins and all kind of antiques. It's one of the most visited attractions in Extremadura. In fact, I haven't ever met anybody who hasn't liked the Museum.
Si vas a a visitar Merida, el Museo de Arte Romano es una parada obligada. La mayoria de las esculturas originales encontradas en las excavaciones estan aqui. Asi que, lo que vas a ver por las calles de Merida son sobre todo copias: los originales se exhiben aqui. Ademas, alberga impresionantes y enormes mosaicos, monedas y todo tipo de antiguedades. Es una de los lugares mas visitados de Extremadura. De hecho, no he conocido a nadie a quien no le haya gustado el Museo.

The Amphitheatre

by alucas

The amphitheatre in Merida was built in the first century BC, and evidence has been found in inscriptions that it was completed and inaugaurated in 8 BC. After it was abandoned, much of the arena was buried, and this is the reason for some much surviving today. Excavation was begun in 1919, and further restoration was carried out in the 1950's.

Entry is combined with the adjoining Roman theatre - the tickets were 5.50 euros in 2004

OF COURSE... VISIT THE THEATRE

by hojasdehierba

If I had to choose, I am not sure that I would select the theatre as my Merida favorite monument. But only for a reason: I often cross the Roman bridge, I walk usually beside the Aqueduct, while I only visit the theatre once a year, more or less. In spite of my personal affections, I admit that the Roman theatre is the most impressive monument in Merida. You can buy a ticket for both theatre and Roman Museum, and it will allow you to go into the theatre through a tunnel which starts at the Museum. Don't miss it.

Si tuviese que elegir, no estoy segura de que seleccionase el teatro como my monumento favorito en Merida. Pero solo por una razon: cruzo a menudo el puente romano, habitualmente paseo muy cerca del Acueducto de los Milagros, mientras que solamente visito el teatro una vez al año, mas o menos. A pesar de mis preferencias personales, reconozco que el Teatro Romano es el monumento mas impresionante de Merida. Puedes comprar una entrada conjunta para el Teatro y el Museo Romano, y en ese caso podras entrar al recinto del teatro a traves de un tunes que comienza en el museo. No te lo pierdas.*
