Mérida, Spain


 ENG

If you've been following me for a while, you probably remember Mérida, a Spanish city near Portugal which is dear to my heart since it's my hubby's hometown. That's where we ended our family trip that began in Lisbon.

Mérida was one of the most important cities of the Roman Empire (Emerita Augusta founded by Augustus in 25 BC) and nowadays is the capital of autonomous community of Extremadura.  Plenty of monuments from the Roman period are a very good reason to visit this city and southwestern Spain.

The majority of the photos were taken at the Roman Theatre, probably the most spectacular place in the city, also know for The International Festival of the Classical Theatre of Merida, which I was able to enjoy a couple of summers ago. You can also see a bit of the Amphitheatre, Aqueduct of Miracles, fortification Alcazaba, Roman bridge over the Guadiana river, the Temple of Diana and more. Hope you like it! :)

Si me seguís desde el principio, quizá sabéis que Mérida es un sitio importante para mí porque es la cuidad natal de mi marido. Ahí acabamos nuestro viaje familiar que empezó en Lisboa. 

Esta cuidad española y la capital de Extremadura fue una de las ciudades más importantes en la época romana. Se llamaba Emerita Augusta y la fundó Augusto en el año 25 a. C. Los monumentos romanos siguen muy bien conservados y es sin duda uno de los sitios de más interés turístico en esta parte de España.      
     
La mayoría de las fotos las hicimos en el Teatro Romano, el símbolo de la ciudad, también conocido por el Festival Internacional de Teatro Clásico de Mérida que tuve oportunidad de disfrutar hace un par de años. También os voy a  enseñar un poco de otros puntos de interés como el Anfiteatro, Acueducto de los Milagros, Alcazaba, Puente romano sobre el río Guadiana, Templo de Diana, etc. Espero que os guste :)

Ako me pratite duže vreme, verovatno se sećate Meride, španskog grada u blizini Portugala, meni posebno dragom delu Španije jer je u pitanju rodni grad mog muža. Ovo je ujedno bio kraj našeg porodičnog putovanja koje smo započeli u Lisabonu. 

Merida je bila jedan od najvažnijih gradova Rimskog carstva. Tada se zvala Emerita Augusta, a osnovao ju je Avgust 25. godine p.n.e.  Danas je glavni grad autonomne pokrajine Ekstremadure, a mnoštvo sačuvanih građevina iz starorimskog perioda su sasvim dobar razlog za obilazak jugozapadne Španije. 
     
Većina slika je nastala u Rimskom pozorištu, koje je ujedno i simbol Meride, a poznato je i po letnjem Međunarodnom Festivalu Klasičnog Pozorišta kojem sam imala prilike da prisustvujem pre par godina. Takođe smo na kratko obišli i rimski amfiteatar, Akvadukt Milagros, arapsko utvrđenje (Alcazaba), rimski most iznad reke Gvadijane i Hram boginje Dijane. Nadam se da će vam se svideti :)

  2. Hola guapa! Yo estuve en Mérida hace dos veranos, y mira que con lo que me gustan a mí las ruinas romanas, Mérida me decepcionó un poquito.. o no se, quizás fue el calor que pasamos ese día que no me dejó disfrutarlo como se merecía! tendré que darle otra oportunidad en otra época del año! jaja Tus fotos como siempre son preciosas, me encantan.. el acueducto es una maravilla, precioso. Y tu look también me gusta mucho, estás muy guapa, como siempre :) Besos y feliz fin de semana!

  4. Da, sjećam se Meride. Veliki sam ljubitelj starorimske civilizacije pa tako i svih njihovih građevina....fotografije su sjajne...Zar nije fascinatno da se predstave još mogu izvoditi na tom istom mjestu? Volim ta mjesta koja nas povezuju sa prošlim vremenima...koje predivno mjesto!

    Ova kombinacija je preslatka, jako mi se sviđaju te hlače. Proljetno, lijepo, ženstveno, a opet vjerojatno i udobno...savršeno.

    1. Pa da, družimo se mi odavno :) Znam da ti to voliš i ceniš i ne sumnjam da bi uživala. Da, zaista je fascinanto, naročito jer se baš i izvode predstave iz starorimskog doba. Zanimljivo je što je pozorište otkriveno tek početkom prošlog veka, pa verujem da je i zato u dobroj meri očuvano...
      Hvala ti mnogo! Takve pantalone su mi super za leto, ni ne osećaš ih na koži, a ujedno su zanimljive i udobne :)

  5. Predivan post, draga. Ne pratim te tako dugo, i nisam bila toliko aktivna što se tiče komentarisanja pa se ne sećam Meride, ali po ovim slikama to je zaista divno mesto. Predivnoo! :D Volela bih da ga posetim, jer sam zaljubljenik u Španiju.

  9. Da, sviđa nam se sviđa :-) Uli je rođen na zaista spektakularnom mestu koje odiše istorijom. Obožavam amfiteatre, uvek me fasciniraju svojom grandioznošću.
    Fotke su naravno prelepe, kao i ti u slatkoj casual kombinaciji.
    Budite mi pozdravljeni golupčići

    1. Da, uvek se rado vraćam Meridi, što iz privatnih razloga, što zbog njene lepote :) Ako se ja pitam, današnja arhitektura nije ništa u poređenju sa starom i umećem koji su ljudi imali...
      Hvala Ivanice! <3

  11. Hi Tijana! Your husband's hometown is terrific, he was so lucky to grow up nearby huge amount of architectural monuments, I'm really impressed and amazed that part of ancient city has survived and it's in really good condition, I'd love to visit this place too. :) What about your outfit, I love your silver bag, if it's new collection of h&m? It seems in perfect size, what's more, I just love metallic shade of its. :)
    Take care, Tijana :)

    1. Hey dear :) Yeah, it's really a nice city and the ancient architecture is preserved. The theatre was discovered only at the beginning of the last century, so I guess it's the main reason because it's in such a good condition :)
      Glad you like the outfit, too! :)
      Uhmm, I'm not sure, I mean, I bought it a couple of months ago on sale, but maybe it was a part of the first round of spring collection ;)

  14. Que fotos más bonitas!! Parece que te has colado en una película romana de gladiadores jajajaja Me gusta la blusa que llevas combinada con esos pantalones. Alguna vez me contaste que Ulises era de Merida y por eso viajáis mucho a España, seguro que es un lugar precioso. Muchísimos besitos mi niña!!!

    1. Bueno, como vivimos en Barcelona... es el mayor motivo jaja :D Pero si vamos a Mérida y la zona, es por la familia de Ulises y también aprovechamos ese tiempo para alguna escapadita por la zona ;) Pues sí, realmente parece una película romana :) Gracias, mi niña! <3

  15. I love this kind of posts on your blog! Merida looks like such a wonderful place full of history. I would love to visit it one day and dive into its atmosphere. How lucky you and your hubby are to be able to go there whenever you like! The photos represent its mesmerizing beauty very well. I am impressed! Hope you're doing fine, Tijana!

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed them and I'm sure you would love Mérida. You know, if you go to Lisbon, Mérida is just a couple of hours away so it's a good opportunity because otherwise it's kind of complicated. We don't go that often, but at lest once or twice a year and it's always nice to be back with my hubby's family and to enjoy the beauty of the city :)
      I'm great, thanks, just I barely have time for blogging these days. Hope you're doing great, as well! :)
