Mérida. Teatro Romano

The Roman Theatre at Mérida is a splendid monument, Europe’s best conserved and the only one which, after being reconditioned, continues to be the setting for theatrical representations and recitals. Every year, people from all over the world are moved by immortal classics of theatre, performed on their original stage, an architectural gem of the 1st century BC. The theatre is set in a World Heritage City and attracts thousands of tourists year after year.
Seeing a play performed in the incomparable setting of Mérida Theatre is a unique, unforgettable experience. The slope of the semicircular theatre, whose original capacity was of some 6,000 people, has incredible acoustics, sensitive to even a whisper by the performers. In the centre there is an impressive stage, decorated by Corinthian-style marble columns, considered to be one of the most beautiful and grandiose of all the Roman Empire

Wow, an impressive place that has stood thousands of years ... amazing. I remember watching a concert by Yanni there (on TV) ... Glad this one stands today ... they are destroying so many historical treasures, the best Roman ruins in the world, in the war in Syria ... treasures destroyed forever, it's so sad. But this one is safe ... at this time in history! A great image of a beautiful place José
