The Catholic monarch, Isabel and Fernando, were guests in this house during their two visits to Caceres. The house has a 15th portion that presents a house-fortress appearance complete of tower with machicolations. The other is a 16th century humanistic addition decorated with fantastic animals.

You need to book yourself onto a tour. This will explain the history of the house as you go from room to room. We enjoyed the Hall of Arms as it goes back to the 16th century.

Our visit was completely spoiled by the poor and unhelpful attitude of the staff. I spoke to the guide beforehand and mentioned that neither my wife or I understood Spanish. The guide was clearly able to speak English reasonably well. I asked if the guide...More

You can only visite this palace by taking part in one of the guided tours (that I think are only in Spanish but I'm not sure). However, the rooms of the Palace are very well maintained and the visite is very informative.

The tour is in Spanish only but don't let that stop you. The interiors of this palace are utterly superb and the paintings, tapestries and furniture as good as any you will find. That and the family history make this a sheer delight. If you...More

This palace is grand and impressive, and gives a good view into the history of wealthy and prominent noblemen. Also, France once used this palace, oddly enough. You can only visit it via a guided tour, and these are often only in Spanish, so do...More

Impressive palace built by the secretary of queen Isabella in 15th century. No English tour available except for pre-arranged groups. No English audio. Also no English explanations next to artifacts. Typical for Spain. Palace is beautiful with old tapestry, antiques, paintings. Both 18th and 19th...More
