  • The walled area of the old town with its absolutely charming buildings is a must-see. Stroll is very nice (except for the heat). Every street, every corner is worthy of a photo, a memory,... Highly recommended visit cistern that is inside the Museum and is free. Also I recommend to visit the Church of San Francisco. You can climb to the tower and there are beautiful views of the city. Entry costs € 1.

  • Do not understand how a city so wonderful is not promoted more... worth more than many cities which I visited at the end and only after they have a monument... Cáceres has one main, but as a whole it is splendid.

  • Perhaps Cáceres being my opinion is not of the more objective, but if you want to see the city more beautiful in the world, don't hesitate to visit it. Offer gourmet, leisure, services and culture by all its corners.
