Tour description

Don't you know Mérida yet? Join our free tour and follow the traces of the past that turned this important city into the capital of Extremadura. Can you imagine the great splendor that Augusta Emerita, the capital of Roman Lusitania, experienced? Centuries and centuries of events wait to be revealed through impressive temples and stone monuments that tell stories from ancient times. Did you know that Mérida was the origin of the famous Vía de la Plata, which connected western Hispania from south to north? Thanks to the valuable vestiges that we can still see today, the city's archaeological complex was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

We invite you to tour Mérida, the heart of Extremadura. In the center of the region and on the banks of two water courses (the Guadiana river and the Albarregas stream), this ancient city has witnessed relevant events over the centuries and has enjoyed times of great wealth.

- Meeting point: Monument to Monument to Santa Eulalia.
