Fodor's Review

Mérida's main square adjoins the northwestern corner of the Alcazaba and is highly animated both day and night. The plaza's oldest building is a 16th-century palace, now the Mérida Palace hotel. Behind the palace stretches Mérida's most charming area, with Andalusian-style white houses shaded by palms, in the midst of which stands the Arco de Trajano, part of a Roman city gate. This is a great place to people-watch over tapas at sunset.
