As an entry to the old city, one accesses it via the Plaza Mayor. The restaurants across from the Arch provide a great spot to sit and admire the old walls and the entrance. Yes, it's an arch - it was designed to give access through the medieval walls.

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
