About Trajan Arch of Merida

The Trajan Arch of Merida is part of UNESCO’s Archaeological Ensemble of Mérida and has in the past been said to have been a triumphal arch to the Emperor Trajan.

However, this has been cast into doubt and historians now think it may have been the entry gate to the nearby Temple of Diana.

A rounded, five metre high arch made of granite and probably once lined with marble, the Trajan Arch of Merida is inconspicuously located on a normal pedestrian street.
