Caceres is a very old beautiful town with lot of cafés and restaurants. There is an old historic town that is well worth a visit as it feels you travel back in time. Just beautiful place.

It's an extraordinary place to visit. Words cannot describe the history and stunning architecture all around. Whether it's palaces, churches, museums, convents, or old squares. You won't be disappointed.

A nice way to spend a day walking through a completely restored ancient Spanish city. With a nice collection of shops and cafes one can spend some time admiring the architecture, history as you wander through the old town of Caceres.

The old town of Caceres is fairly small and a delight to explore on foot. Small narrow streets opening onto squares with no traffic to speak of. The buildings reflect their history all around you. A real pleasure to explore.

The best that I have visited for a long time. The Old Town is so big, World Heritage, much better in the night, with churchs, palaces, restaurants and bars...

A very nice place to explore with narrow streets. Most building have QR codes that will help you learn more about the history of the building. Just explore and get lost in the narrow streets of this old town

We weren't here long, but having been to many other European old cities I can say this is pretty good. One of the best things was the 1000s of birds (swallows) that were buzzing around the entire town. Wish I could have spent more time.

This is a unesco world herritage site, restored and protected. A great place to visit and to top it of hardly any tourists here. Quite amazing. Felt like what you imagine being a tourist before tourism kicked off

It is easy just to spend half or a whole day wandering the old streets of this amazing town, unfortunately they don't add English to any of their descriptions which makes it hard. However, just meandering through the streets looking at the alleyways, amazing doors and walls is fun. Get there late afternoon early evening stay in the old town.

The museum of antiquities will take your breath away. It is hard to believe that some artifacts are years BCE. Is a very easy museum to visit. So climb detergent belltower for a beautiful view all around the walled city. Be sure to do it before the bell rings!!!
