Although one could say Cáceres is a city with a heart of stone, this should not be taken literally. Beneath its stone shell of 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. Today, the city is still a must-see for those who adore natural landscapes, Medieval cities, famous local cuisine, as well as peace and quiet, all of which can be found at our hotels in Cáceres, which add the final touch to your getaway to the very charming 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 cobblestone streets of the old town, where some of the best-preserved palaces and fortresses in Europe are still standing today.
The remains of the Arabic city wall 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. These city walls still surround the two largest areas of Cáceres. Within these walls, the main tourist sites 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, are today a reflection of the city’s majestic past. These buildings, steeped in symbolism, make the city an unmissable destination on the historical journey through Spain.
The historical centre of Cáceres and its many monuments is much more than a place to take a stroll. Whilst exploring its stone streets, it’s impossible not to stumble across one of the countless 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, representative of Arabic tradition in the area.
