Extremadura Things to Do: 59 reviews and 61 photos


Where the valleys of the Jerte and the Ambroz rivers converge, the city of Pleasance stands with its rich historical legacy as capital of Northern Extremadura and fourth city in the region.

Like its northern neighbour, Salamanca, Pleasance has also two cathedral churches: the new one, unfinished, embraces the old Gothic building and displays an impressive Plateresque façade.

This picture shows the entrance to the cathedral cloister: meeting point of the two buildings.

Directions: Guarded by Medieval walls on the banks of the Jerte river.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
