43 miles South of Caceres, Mérida conserves one the largest Antic Theatre of the Roman Empire. The capital of Extremadura can be admired from the suspended bridge that crosses over the rio Guadiana. The theatre can still today be full of spectators during the Classical Theatre Festival. The amphitheatre and the museum, encolsing one of the world's largest collection of Roman Art, is well worth a visit. A richness that made Mérida part of the UNESCO World Heritage in 1993.
