Cáceres Travel Guide: 74 reviews and 212 photos

Cáceres is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Its Old City, also called the Monumental City, is a group of buildings (houses, churches, convents and towers) inside the castle walls.

Once you get inside, every build is a monument, ... it's really amazing. You must keep looking up, since there are archs, balconies, windows, so many details, ...

One detail i found fascinating were the storks' nests and the piggeons flying over you and hidding in small holes in the buildings' ancient stones.

Cáceres is very well preserved, everything is beautifuly well kept. During my visit i saw several houses being renovated and it's remarkable the care they put into it, maintaining the original details and using the same materials, ...

Everything is so perfect, almost too much perfect, ... like a scenario!!

I spent a nice afternoon there, walking around the streets. Pitty it was too hot ,although it was the end of September.

    Very thorough tour of Cacaeres and some lovely pics. I didn't get to spend much time here but you've convinced me to make the journey. Best regards.

    "to perfect" is just the way I wanted too describe it .. really beautiful ... but too perfect .. perhaps to much ... not like Trujillo that I founded full of life and flowers :))) Sure Ayuntamiento don't have better page than you:))

    Many thanks for your superb insight into Caceres. I was intending to visit for 2 days from Madrid but you have persuaded me that 2 days is not enough and I will visit some other time for longer

    so many detailed tips and impressive pictures, also in the travelogues; Caceres is such a beautiful place, but of course I am biased, because I like this Arab-Spanish style of the houses, fortifications and churches.
