A great way to start exploring the old town

Going though the archway is probably the best way to enter and start exploring the old town from the Plaza Mayor.

I have to admit it didn't look as impressive in real life, but lovely all the same. We went on a really gloomy day with a thunderstorm looming, so probably not at it's best.

Great part of Caceres, best place to start exploring the old town which is quite impresive, but be ready to sweat, it can be hot even in June
