You can spent half a day in the old part of Cáceres. Walking around, stopping for a coffee or to see one of the nice museums or to eat in the best restaurants of the city.

This is an interesting place to visit, although it lacked any colour. It would have been nice if it had more gardens around. It was all stone and brick and all the houses were locked and barred. Cobbled streets and lots of ups and downs. Although the museums are free, all signage is in Spanish, so we couldn't appreciate them... More

This is another charming, historical Spanish city, perfect for strolling around by day and night and because we didn't really have time to do a complete circuit, we'll have to schedule a return visit. The square at night is lovely, with several bars to sit at, enjoy tapas and wine and watch the world walk by.

I happen to like old towns. The old city of Caceres is right up there. Allow yourself to get lost in the narrow cobbled streets, sit in the main square and people watch over a wine or two, and visit a few of the many interesting cathedrals, churches & museums that make up the old city. Fantastic.

The old town is beautiful, very well-preserved and it is amazing how it fits so well together with the 'new' town. One minute you can be walking down a street of shops and cafes to the Plaza Mayor, and once you've crossed the square you're in the old town with its church, museum and many other attractions. Keep an eye... More

Caceres is well worth a visit, even if for only one night. If possible stay a little longer. Beautiful !

The old town of Caceres is just beautiful, especially so during the evening when it is lit by strategically placed lamps. We wandered round finding little alleys, squares and tucked away cafes and bars. A Spanish relative took us into the lobby of a convent and negotiated with a nun through a wooden grille to buy cakes - wish my... More

Loved the walking distance of everything and the conservation of the town. 2 days is more than enough

Caceres is a city mixing many cultures. One of fifteen Spanish Cities awarded World Heritage Status. Spain contains the third largest number of World Heritage sites of any country in the World. This makes Caceres immensely important for many reasons. Caceres has existed in one form or another since prehistoric times. Trace evidence has been found from all eras back... More

We only had a short time to visit the old town as we were on a one night stopover to Ronda. Suffice to say we want to go back to give it the time it deserves. Certainly a must see, simply beautiful.
