What's Merida Like?

The Roman remains are the obvious draw for most visitors to Merida, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city was once the capital of the Roman province of Lusitania and central highlights include the spectacular amphitheater and theater. Nearby are the ruins of a Roman villa and a museum housing a wealth of Roman treasures, artworks, statues and mosaics. Outside the city center there are additional Roman attractions, notably the hippodrome, aqueducts and the villa of Mitreo. The ancient bridge was the longest in the Roman empire and is still in use for pedestrians. After a long day exploring the antiquities, sample the atmospheric bars and restaurants around the Plaza De Espana where Extremaduran meat dishes and local wine are specialties. Merida hotels offer a convenient base for experiencing all that the city has to offer.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Merida

Extremadura is the region that gave the world the conquistadores who conquered the Americas. They did so on a diet of pork. The best way to fit in with Merida locals is to embrace the local love of ham, sausages, pork chops and a wide variety of pig-related produce. Most savory dishes are spiced with the local paprika, pimenton de la Vera. Merida is a tourist town used to international visitors but using a few everyday Spanish phrases will be welcomed. Tipping in Spain is not mandatory, but rounding up a check or adding a euro or two will make you popular. When choosing Merida hotels, it is invaluable to draw on the expertise of Venere.
