The Plaza de Espana in Merida

The political and cultural center of Hispania Rome, Merida was conquered by the Muslims in 713 A.D. After a 500 year period of decline, the city was virtually abandoned until the 1500's.

We visited Merida in October. Despite the rainy weather, I really enjoyed walking among the ruins and exploring the town. If Roman history is your interest, you will definitely want to visit this city.
