But it is steep and cobbled so something to be aware of for disabled travellers. Sitting in the Plaza Mayor is a great experience - buzzing and cosmopolitan. Buildings are fantastic.

it is a city of conquistadores ...the conditions of living in this poor town forced them to face their adventure... especially at night, while wandering round its narrow medieval paths it is very easy to return a few hundred years back ... it is located 30 minuts walk from the bus station and is really worth visiting ...obligatory for fans...

Loved this town. It is not overrun by souvenir shops or a million cafes. It is just like stepping back in time. Loved it. Beautiful place if you like seeing ancient towns unpolluted by tourist junk. Heaps of history here.

We went on a grey gloomy day with a thunderstorm hovering, but it still looked lovely. We had to run about because of the rain, so didn't have time to do more than the cathedral and the museum.

The old town of Cáceres is very well conserved. The big Plaza Mayor is from one side enclosed by the old citcy. A beautiful ancient gateway gives entrance to the old town.

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.
