Absolutely everything of the old town of this city is beautiful and magical, with breathtaking buildings that will take you straight into the medieval era just by walking around the streets. Many places to eat, specially small dishes at good price. In the old town try "La cacharrería" and better "Torre de Sande".

It's no wonder that the Old Town of Cáceres is a UNESCO world heritage listed sight because it is a wonderful place. There is so much to see so make sure that you allow yourself enough time here. The views from the Iglesia de San Fransisco Javier has two towers and from them you can get wonderful views of the... More

Incredibly rich in history, atmospheric, and well maintained without being over managed and commercialized (like medieval towns in France or Italy). An architecture/history buff's heaven. The nesting storks and odd peacock wandering the walls and roofs don't hurt! Excellent culinary choices both in and beyond the old quarter.

This town was founded by the ancient Romans. Subsequently it was occupied by different cultures. All this is visible in the form of monuments built in the Roman, Gothic,and Renaissance architecture. Even today the cobbled medieval streets and houses remind you of the bygone age. It is an UNESCO world heritage site.

As the sky dimmed and the lights of the Old Town turned everything golden, we heard beautiful music echoing off the walls around unseen corners. We did not allow enough time to explore this incredible area and we will have to return. Just wandering around was magical but there is so much we did not see. Make sure you allow... More

Extremely well preserved, is probably one of the finest and most beautiful old towns in Spain. Worth a visit. And is Extremadura so go and stuff yourself with the best pork in the world.

This is a beautiful city on a hill with well preserved walls surrounding this medieval city. Does not feel touristy since there are very few in town and is an enjoyment to walk around at a slow pace, sucking the history around you.

The walls and the inner city are well-restored, the city perched on a hill overlooking the countryside. Stark stone buildings with no decorations except for family crests, narrow streets, few small plazas. Vegetation seems to be limited to the inner gardens. Few storks on steeples or flying in the air. Few tourists, does not feel touristy. One does get the... More
