TRAVEL GUIDE
Mérida introduction
Situated on the shores of the Guadiana River is a monumental city called Merida. It is one of the most famous Roman capitols of the Iberian Peninsula. It was founded in 25 BC by the Roman emperor Augusto who established the city for retired soldiers to honor their dedicated service to Rome. It thus became a town where the honored veterans could live out their days in peace.

The city was originally called “Emerita Augusta” in honor of the founder of the city. It quickly became the capital of the province of Lusitanica. Merida was situated strategically between two important trading routes, one that led from Astorga to Italy and the other that went between Tarraco to Lisbon. Therefore, Merida prospered quickly and by the 4th Century had become the ninth most important city in the Roman Empire with a population of 35,000.
