Situated next to the amphitheatre, the remains actually belong to two houses, a section of the San Lázaro aqueduct and a decant tower. It belongs to Mérida’s archaeological site, which has the UNESCO World Heritage designation.
One of the houses is near the decant tower of the aqueduct and the peristyle and several rooms are preserved. The best preserved house with the largest amount of remains is the one that is furthest away. It still keeps the peristyle, rooms and paved hallways with mosaics. The mosaic in the dining room is especially interesting and beautiful. Walls decorated with frescos, thermal baths, kitchens, drains, etc.
