The amphitheatre stands.

The gladiatorial contests took place on the amphitheatre’s arena. This monument belongs to Mérida’s archaeological site, which has the UNESCO World Heritage designation.

It was officially opened in 8 B.C. and is located beside the theatre, making use of the slope of the hill of San Albín. There is a cross-shaped pit in the centre of the arena.
