A decently preserved Roman homestead that you view from an elevated walkway, combined with a burial area you can visit if you wish. A bit out of the way from downtown, but worth the walk.
It was an roman house and has three very interesting courtyards with columns around which the residence is organised. Some of the rooms are decorated with mosaics and mural paintings. The house in general is extraordinarily beautiful.A place not to miss if you go to Merida !
Please, keep some of your time when you visit Merida to enjoy this charming place. It is the typical roman house with all the public and private areas, but the real surprise is take the path towards the "Columbarios" next to the house: a very nice place worth the walk.
Merida is full of amazing Roman sights and if you are walking from the theatre/ amphitheatre/ museum area to the alcazaba/Roman bridge area you will pass this villa. The layout is interesting, and the mosaics are worth seeing -it is good to know that they were laid in that exact spot. Many of the exhibits at the museum were found... 更多
This is an interesting site which anyone interested in roman life (or indeed contemporary house design!) should visit.

This site is included in your ticket and about a 10 minute walk from the Roman theater and the Alcazaba/Roman bridge. The mosaics were barely visible and the quality of the tiles is average. If you are pressed for time, just skip it.
In the outskirts of the town right next to the bullring, you find this archeologic place of a former villa. An elevated walkway brings you right around the house but compared to the theaters or the roman findings underneath the basilica it is not so impressive. It is part of the Combo ticket so therefore you don't lose any money.
Don't expect it as impressive and massive as the amphitheater, theatre or the circus. It is indeed "just a house", but very well preserved. The mosaic is one of the most colourful I have ever seen, more beautiful than those in the Museum, and it's kept in the open! The elevated walkway makes it easy to understand the room plan.... 更多
We visited Casa del Mitreo as part of the package of sites on the entrance ticket for the Roman Theatre and Amphitheatre. We were really impressed by the lovely mosaics and the preservation of a Roman villa. The let down was that none of the displays had English translation and we weren't offered any literature in English. More still to... 更多
