We had gone to Merida for the weekend, which began sunny over here. However, this is what the weather looked like on Sunday, very rainy and cold. We were sitting in the city's main square when this huge amount of water fell all over the place.

The theatre could acommodate over 6 thousand people in its glory days.

The columns in the theatre are made of some wonderful blue marble, as it can be seen in this picture.

This statue is above the main gate at the Roman anphiteathre - very likely a goddess, Diana, but I'm not sure. Quite amazing that it has been standing there for 2000 years!

A picture from the Roman theatre in Merida, built in 1st century A.D. It is not in Greece or Italy, but in Spain, near the Portuguese border.
