The Visigoth Art Museum was a wash in my opinion. Everything I saw there, I also saw at the first museum.
I saw a choo choo that takes you on a tour around Merida. My experience is that these are worth the 4-5 euros just to get a good circular tour.
I guess that is it!
Here are a few photos if my favorite things at the museum. The glass and mosaics were spectacular.
|Blown glass fish - beautiful!|
|Gorgeous mosaic floors and painted walls|
|I'd wear these!|
|A very dainty and pretty glass cup.|
|People in ancient Roman times had fancy glass dishes!|
|Lots of clay lamps|
|A canteen - you could carry it on the Camino!|
|I loved this colander|
|Dental and Surgical Tools haven't changed much|
The FACES of Roman Spain!
You can see any of these folks walking down main street today!
There was much, much more to see.
I just don't have enough space to post all the photos.
Walk the Via de la Plata!
Stop in Merida!
See it for yourself!
