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

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.

It's true what the previous reviewers have written---there a very few businesses in the old town. It is like a large museum. it's lovely this way. A nice break from tourist destinations where the shops that sell worthless tourist junk are densely packed right next to the historical sites.
