Surroundings

The town was founded in 25 B.C. Named Augusta Emerita by Octavius Augustus, it was a retirement place for Roman army soldiers from two veteran legions of the Cantabrian Wars: Legio V Alaudae and Legio X Gemina. These legions were situated under condition of upgrading the ancient inhabitants to the category of Roman citizens. The city was the capital of the Roman province of Lusitania. "Emeritus" stands for "retired" in Latin and it referred to the soldiers retired with honor. Its citizens were ascribed to the Papiria tribe.

The main attractions of the city are:

  • Roman Theatre
  • Roman Anphitheater
  • Roman Circus
  • Roman bridge over river Guadiana
  • Aqueduct of Los Milagros
  • Aqueduct of Rabo de Buey-San Lázaro
