We had an apartment with a roof terrace and garage for the car just West of the Plaza Mayor. But this is such a lovely little town that despite the unseasonably hot weather (for early June - we were glad of the a/c units in the apartment) would be well worth a 5 day stay, especially if you've got a...

My son-in-law comes from Caceres and it is such a beautiful place to visit. This is a World Heritage Site so that gives you some idea of what to expect. You will not be disappointed. Pick your month as it can get very hot in high summer but you'll be well tempted by the cafes and tapas bars that's for... More

I liked everything ! I would recommend people going in May because it was really, really hot in June and this weather doesn´t allow you to enjoy the city as much as you would like to!

You walk on cobblestone streets by palaces and buildings that take you back to the XVI Century. One of the largest medieval quarters in Spain, open to visitors and offering cultural events like concerts and theater performances.

We visited Caceres in September 2014 on the recommendation from a friend from Madrid. We were not disappointed, Caceres is a beautiful city in the heart of Spain. It is very safe here and we walked/hiked throughout the entire town. Old Town Caceres is a UNESCO world heritage site and is very deserving of the designation, it has been restored... More

We were on a six-city tour out of Madrid with Julia Travel, and this was the first stop out of Lisbon. It was a small, unimpressive town, but the plaza was nice for sitting at a small cafe watching families enjoying the beautiful Sunday afternoon. The food was bad, but the view was nice. We walked around to see the... More

I am almost reluctant to share this review, because part of the appeal of the place is that it's not on the usual tourist routes. So if you are interested in something other than the usual well-worn paths, then this is for you. The rest can move on. Caceres is a treasure; small, accessible and well preserved, it's one of...

I was really surprised when I went there. Place is far from everywhere in Spain and it is not evident to find a reason to go to Caceres. If you find you will never imagine what you can expect. It is a beautiful middle Age town amazingly kept and with a lot of personality. Food was also great. Whole trip... More

Caceres Old Town is a really great place to wander about and gaze at all the (mostly the outside of) old palaces and buildings. While it's very atmospheric, it doesn't feel as if you're walking around a living town. That only happens when you go outside the walls into the new town. While you're in the town, you do get...

As an Hispanophile interested in the history of the country I found this part of Cáceres to be really worth a visit. Highly recommended.
