Alan Rogers Review
Camping Mérida is situated alongside the main NV road to Madrid, the restaurant, café and pool complex separating the camping area from the road, where there is considerable noise. The site has 60 good sized touring pitches, most with some shade and on sloping ground, with ample 6A electricity connections (long leads may be needed) and hedges with imaginative topiary. No English is spoken, but try out your Spanish. Reception is open until midnight. Camping Mérida is ideally located to serve both as a base to tour the local area and as an overnight stop en route when travelling either north/south or east/west.
Mérida was the tenth city of the Roman Empire and it is purported that it contains the most Roman remains in all of Spain. The 60-arched Roman bridge, the amphitheatre and the National Museum of Roman Art are just some of the attractions that can be enjoyed here. In July and August the theatre festival stages classical Greek plays and Roman tragedies.
The central sanitary block includes hot and cold showers, British style WCs and facilities for disabled visitors. Gas supplies. Small shop for essentials. Busy restaurant/cafeteria and bar, also open to the public. Medium sized swimming and paddling pools (15/6-20/9). Bicycle hire. Play area (unfenced and near road). Torches useful.
