Next day, at sunrise, a long bus ride, almost to the border of Portugal and we are in a large Roman city in Lusitania with one of the best preserved Roman theaters.
But what sets Merida apart is how it cares for its history. Walking into the city’s Roman history museum we are transported in time. The architect truly captures the feeling.
And here is a temple of Diana, which apparently got preserved because a rich man built his house into it.
Merida also has the longest Roman bridge standing. It is still being used as a pedestrian bridge.
