About Mithraeum House – Merida

Mithraeum House (Casa del Mitreo) in Merida was an impressive Roman home built sometime in the late first, early second century. Centred on three main courtyards and with some of its intricate decoration still evident, it is clear that Mithraeum House would have been a grand residence.

The current name of Mithraeum House derives from the artefacts found there relating to the cult of Mitra.
