I think Caceres is unique. To find such an old city of such scale seemingly unchanged inside the walls. Just take a walk around daytime and nightime, soak up the atmosphere and take some photos. We visited during the Medieval Market of which some was set up inside the old city adding to the atmosphere we felt. Loved it !... More

This is, in my honest opinion as a Spaniard from another old town, the absolute best old town in the country. It rivals the ancient towns in Tuscany, and clearly surpasses anything else you can visit in Spain. In my honest opinion, it is best visited at night, when the marvelous lighting is in full bloom.

Liked everything apart from the rather hectic traffic of the high town - easily got away from. Walled city full of charm.

Great square full of restaurants and bars its what's needed after a long days travel. Would like more time to explore the old town and narrow streets.

The old town of Caceres is without any doubt very impressing. We would have Expected as well some bars or restaurants, but we haven't found any. If you would like to make a rest you should stop around the grand plaza next to the historic town.

Caceres is a lovely old town which surprisingly stops at the Plaza Mayor on the other side of which is the start of the new town, with what can only be described as quite unattractive buildings. The streets are steep but manageable, There are many attractive old buildings and it is an absolute joy to wander around.

Lots of interesting buidings, only don't visit on a Thursday afternoon when all appear to be closed, and watch out for the lady at the two white towers, will let no one pass. Think she only likes Spanish tourists!

Great atmosphere, lots of historic buildings in a confined space. People are friendly and it is not so full of tourists so you can really enjoy it!
