Merida, Spain, a city of ancient Rome...

One of the side trips arranged by Mester Academy was a trip to the city of Merida, a city founded by the Romans in 25 B.C.E.  We spent a couple hours there, eating a picnic lunch in the park (prepared by the cook at the residencia) and touring the museum.

 Below the museum is a crypt, and other remains of the city.

Ruins of the amphitheater.

 Oil lamps from the era.
Roman road.
Tiled mosaic floor preserved from the Roman era.  The tiles are about an inch square.
