What's Caceres Like?
The architecture of Caceres was influenced both by the Moorish occupation between the 8th and 13th centuries and by the riches that the conquistadors brought back from the Americas in the 16th century. The old town retains its imposing Roman and Moorish walls. Within, the maze of streets features a wealth of period buildings, including the elegant mansions of the conquistadors. The Casa de Toledo-Moctezuma was once the home of a daughter of the Aztec emperor, brought back to Caceres as a prize. The hub of the old town is the Plaza De Santa Maria, featuring an imposing Gothic church and stylish mansions. More modern creations are on display in the appealing gallery in the Casa de los Caballos, featuring masterpieces by Miro and Picasso. Caceres hotels make the ideal base for exploring the old town in the early evening when the streets are quieter and the city's skyline, with its storks' nests and Moorish decoration, takes on an irresistibly romantic aspect.
