Mérida. Arco de Trajano

THE TRAJANO'S ARC, was the monumental access gate to the holy space (temenos) that surrounded a gigantic imperial cult temple. The semicircular arch that is preserved at 15 metres above the beginning of the pillars was the central opening of a gate with three arches. The two lateral ones were smaller and segmental arches. The whole structure is made out of granite ashlars.

Nicely composed with the arch as frame. It was built well to last this long. V

A splendid arch and fine presentation. V

Striking use of the ancient arch to frame the house beyond. This is certainly a treasure chest of a town! V.
