Take a trip back to medieval times - to times of knights, minstrels, princesses, castles and battlements. Cáceres awaits you. Be sure to visit this wonderful city in Extremadura, that is proud to show off its unsurpassed historic and artistic heritage. Its walled old town is home to many interesting buildings, constructed mainly between the 14th and 18th centuries. There are unique, stunning gems to be discovered around every corner.

Explore its streets and walls, packed with history, and you will be amazed by the beauty of one of Europe's most stunning monumental sites, declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.

Explore its narrow, cobbled streets, crossed by arches. Admire ancient walls that have been silent witnesses to glorious periods of history. Feel how time stands still in its Renaissance courtyards, convents, monasteries and churches, towers, palaces and mansions of the old nobility. Forget the time and lose yourself in the streets of this city, crowned by ochre rooftops that call to mind mysteries and the past.

Cáceres falls on the Silver Route (Seville-Santiago de Compostela), as well as the Paths of Sepharad (route taking in Spain's ancient Jewish quarters), and is full of surprises. At each curve in its streets, at every hill and square, you will find typical spots where you could easily imagine the appearance of figures from times gone by bearing cape and sword. There are a host of things to see in the historic centre, but a stroll through the Jewish quarter is a must. Not to be missed either are the world's best-conserved Moorish wells and cisterns.

This magic continues behind the city walls, where you will find a series of religious buildings and palaces, gardens and bustling streets packed with shops and taverns. Despite the fact that it is a small city, Cáceres is very lively. This is, among other things, due to the university atmosphere that extends throughout the city. This vitality is also to be found in the excellent nightlife, well worth experiencing. Why not enjoy an unforgettable trip to Cáceres, a pearl of a city that will surprise you from the moment you arrive?
