About Trajan Arch of Merida
The Trajan Arch of Merida is part of UNESCO’s Archaeological Ensemble of Mérida and has in the past been said to have been a triumphal arch to the Emperor Trajan.
However, this has been cast into doubt and historians now think it may have been the entry gate to the nearby Temple of Diana.
A rounded, five metre high arch made of granite and probably once lined with marble, the Trajan Arch of Merida is inconspicuously located on a normal pedestrian street.
The Merida Roman Circus was an Ancient Roman chariot racing arena which, though in ruins, is one of the better preserved of its type.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours!
