If you come during the city's Medieval Festival as we did, you will find street markets, lots of people in costumes, music and much of the old city, its wall and buildings will come to life. Check for the dates through tourism websites. In 2014 it was in November. At any time of the year, however, those buildings are still... More

What an amazing medieval city. Good food in a very economic price. Nice people, very hot weather in summer. If you like medieval places this is one to go. Perfect place to visit a typical spanish site. Very recommended for those looking for clasical tourism. Not so recommended if you are looking for modern places or very up-to-date sites.

We really enjoyed looking around this beautiful little town, so many interesting things to see. A trip to the tourist office first was useful as they gave us a good map and suggested a route that would take in all places of interest. We spent two days here, and that felt about right.

If you like exploring old towns and their museums and ramparts. This is the place. The Tourist Information Office is a great place to start. You must visit the Palaces, Cathedral and Museums. Just a wonderful place to explore.

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.
