The preservation work done in the town is amazing together with the history of the town. Well worth the drive!

A real bit of mideaval history, beautifully and sensitively preserved. All within a walled city, narrow cobbled streets, lots of steps and ramparts as well as aquaducts and monasteries and churches galore. Well worth the effort.

Lots of historical buildings in the city. Lots of signs, etc., most in English. We just wandered through the streets with a few maps we got from the tourist office, located in the Plaza Mayor.

Loved all the historic buildings, unfortunately it was raining when we visited but it was still very impressive.

Walking into the Old Town of Caceres is like stepping back in time... The modern city is quite nice in itself, the central avenue being leafy (and we needed the shade, even in October!) but go into the Old Town and it's like being in a different city. Once through the gates, you wouldn't suspect that you were only a... More

This old town is classic Spain! There's a statue in one of the squares of San Pedro de Alcantara in which it is considered good luck to rub the feet. The small picture perfect streets are fun to walk down.

It's an area of cobbled streets, old stone buildings, chimney pots with nests on them, etc, and it's pretty in a theme-park-ish sort of way. The trouble is that there's practically nothing in the way of normal life - it's all but impossible to find an ordinary bar, for instance, and everyone else you see looks like another tourist -...

From it's grand entrance in the Plaza Mayor (main square) of Caceres, you are presented with three winding streets, almost lanes to go down and all are beautiful. The ancient buildings are stunning and the churches are all very beautiful. If you speak Spanish, there are some informative plaques here and there on the walls, which are very interesting. And...

This city is amazing. The "casco antiguo" just blew up my mind, specially at night. Very well kept. Anywhere you look at is special.

Nice to wonder around, but we preferred nearby Trujillo for atmosphere. Very much worth at least a days visit.
