With Roman ruins popping up all over town for some reason we thought this would be more spectacular. Probably not worth seeking out on a hot day but certainly worth finding on an evening stroll...there is also a bar with a view!

A trip to Merida is like a trip to another world. You stumble upon Roman ruins every time you turn a corner, just standing there in the middle of the city. So glad we went to this gem!

well, it is a nice, big arch, but while it was once an entrace to a big temple, it stands now kind of in the middle of nowhere. walk by, give it a look, but you will not spend much time here.

This is certainly worth a look and to the right is a nice restaurant to grab a bite or a drink with the same name.

Trajan's Arch is a beautiful granite entry way to the 1st century Roman forum. The arch was originally faced with marble, we were told. Now, though, it is plain grey in color and a little rough textured for wear through 2,000 years of human traffic...More

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.
