Los Voconios and Los Julios Mausoleum.

They are open-air incineration tombs belonging to two important families: the Voconii and the Julii. They are situated in the south-eastern Roman necropolis. They belong to Mérida’s archaeological site and have the UNESCO World Heritage designation.

Inside there are funerary urns and a family portrait of the Voconii. The dedication tombstones are at the entrance door. They are two mall buildings because their purpose was to keep the remains of the deceased family members.
