Although some would say Cáceres is a city with a heart of stone, this should not be taken literally. Beneath the hard shell of its ochre-coloured buildings is one of the most romantic cities in Spain.
Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986, Cáceres was a key point on the historic Vía de la Plata [Silver Route] from Seville to Astorga. Nowadays, the city is still a must-see for lovers of natural landscapes, Medieval cities, famous local cuisine, as well as peace and quiet, all of which can be found at our hotels in Cáceres, putting the cherry on top of a charming getaway in Extremadura.
The focus of any visit to Cáceres is its historic centre, one of the most important Medieval and Renaissance heritage sites in the world. It is here, in the cobbled streets of the old town, where some of the best-preserved palaces and fortresses in Europe still stand today.
The remains of the Arabic city walls still surround Cáceres, a city characterised by earthy tones. From practically any direction, you can still make out the silhouettes of more than a dozen towers on the city’s skyline, which look over its Plaza Mayor square. These city walls still surround the two largest areas of Cáceres. Within these walls, the main tourist attractions and places of interest can be found. Emblematic sites such as Las Veletas Palace, Bujaco Tower, the Casa del Sol, or the Co-cathedral of Santa María remain a reflection of the city’s majestic past. These buildings, steeped in symbolism, make the city a key location on Spain's historic routes.
The historical centre of Cáceres and its many monuments is much more than just a place to take a stroll. Whilst exploring its cobbled streets, it’s impossible not to stumble across one of the many museums that further enrich any visit to this city. Places such as the Museum of Cáceres, with a permanent exposition depicting the city’s archaeological and cultural past, the Museum of the Co-cathedral, or the Yusuf Al Burch Arabic Museum-House, representing Arabic tradition in the area, are must-sees.
Choosing a good hotel is one of the most important aspects when it comes to guaranteeing a successful holiday in Cáceres.
