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.

I think Caceres is unique. To find such an old city of such scale seemingly unchanged inside the walls. Just take a walk around daytime and nightime, soak up the atmosphere and take some photos. We visited during the Medieval Market of which some was set up inside the old city adding to the atmosphere we felt. Loved it !... More

This is, in my honest opinion as a Spaniard from another old town, the absolute best old town in the country. It rivals the ancient towns in Tuscany, and clearly surpasses anything else you can visit in Spain. In my honest opinion, it is best visited at night, when the marvelous lighting is in full bloom.
