  • Lovely area with which to enjoy in family or friends. Alleys to discover and live. A pleasure to meet you Caceres!

  • A unique historic hull. There are plenty of buildings that you can visit and each with a story. The concentration of places of interest is overwhelming. It reminded me of some Italian cities, like Siena. The medieval past is well visible and Renaissance heritage even more. Is perhaps a great example of the Spanish Renaissance, especially at the level of urban palaces. The Roman and Arabic heritages are there too, although with a more subdued, more wasted as long as expected. The Plaza Mayor in the evening, with the whole scenario of walls, towers and ancient city behind, it's a show not to be missed, as well as the famous processions of Holy week.
