Two millennia of history

Mérida was founded in 25 BCE, so you are now in a city that is over 2,000 years old. When the Romans laid out their plans for the city, they included a theatre and an amphitheatre in their designs; like any other self-respecting Roman city, proper leisure options for the people were very important. The Romans chose this site for the city for several reasons: it was a peaceful area where they could impose their rule with little effort; it was connected by two rivers; and it also had good roads for communication and trade with other important cities of the time, such as Lisbon, Seville, Toledo and Zaragoza.
