Spain - Archaeological Ensemble of Mérida
Roman Amphitheater, Puente Lusitania, Milagros Aqueduct and ruins of the Citadel
Sent by Marzar from Mérida, Spain.
Mérida is symbolic of the process of Romanization in a land that had hitherto not been influenced by the urban phenomenon. It contains the substantial remains of a number of important elements of Roman town design, considered to be one of the finest surviving examples of its type; the aqueducts and other elements of Roman water management are also especially well preserved and complete.
