  • This theatre festival is for young people, with performances by young people in a unique setting: the Mérida Roman Theatre.

    In 1997 Santa Eulalia high school started to organise the famous annual European Greco-Latin Theatre Festival in the Roman Theatre in Mérida, during a week in April. Hundreds of young people who are part of theatre groups come from all over Spain to this educational festival, and they perform the classics in a unique setting.

    The people who visit the festival are also young – they are high-school students, and the aim of the European Greco-Latin Theatre Festival is to allow young people from all over Spain to discover more about the Greek and Roman cultures through theatre. High-school teachers give the students the texts of Greek and Latin plays, which are previously selected by the festival's organising team, and they prepare them for the festival.

    Mérida comes alive thanks to the students that fill the streets during the festival.
