about Trajan Arch of Merida
The Trajan Arch of Merida is part of UNESCO’s Archaeological Ensemble of Mérida and has in the past been said to have been a triumphal arch to the Emperor Trajan. However, this has been cast into doubt and historians now think it may have been the entry gate to the nearby Temple of Diana.
A rounded, five metre high arch made of granite and probably once lined with marble, the Trajan Arch of Merida is inconspicuously located on a normal pedestrian street.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Trajan Arch of Merida is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past.
