Lonely Planet review

The remains of the 1st-century Circo Romano, which could accommodate 30,000 spectators, represent the only surviving hippodrome of its kind in Spain. Inside you can see brief footage in Spanish about Diocles, a champion auriga (chariot racer) who served his apprenticeship in Mérida before going on to the big league in Rome.
