This is what remains of a Roman arch and can be found in the street with a brief info panel. You can see it on a stroll through the City and will need only a few minutes to see all this has to offer.

It's an old Arch located in the heart of the town. It's worth a visit if you're into that kind of thing. Those romans sure knew how to build stone structures.

It's a large arch. You can walk through it but watch out for traffic. Little square on one side in which you can sit for a while but otherwise not great.

You stumble over it when you walk through the streets of the old part of Merida, it is a nice spot, but comparing to other attractions it is not that spectacular.
