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!

The old town is very much kept as a monument unlike others we visited such as Evora. The ochre colours were lovely and the buildings impressive. Enjoyed a very relaxed wander around,

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...
