The old town of Caceres is hands-down one the best-preserved medieval cities in all of Europe. Centuries of conflict between Moorish rulers and Christian Kings transformed the city into a maze of cobbled winding streets surrounded by fortified walls, towers, barbicans and stone manor houses. Come and join the best Essential Free Tour of Caceres to explore the highlights of the old town in the most entertaining and educative way. Your expert local guide will share lots of interesting anecdotes, tell amazing legends, and reply to all your questions! This well paced tour is perfect for travelers of all backgrounds, no matter if you are new to the city or a local who wants to dive deeper into Caceres history.

Your Caceres Essential Free Tour will take you on a journey from the Roman origins of the city in the 1st century BC to the conquest by Alfonso IX of Leon in 1229. Your guide will take your group to the expansive Plaza Mayor, the epicenter of local social life. There you will find the Town Hall, the massive Bujaco Tower, Yerba Tower, the Arch of the Star, and many more medieval landmarks. Strolling along the atmospheric cobbled streets around the Plaza Mayor, you will also find many other highlights, including the Gothic Los Golfines de Abajo Palace, and the Cathedral of Santa Maria. During the tour, you will also learn about the Jewish community that once flourished here.

As you stroll along the charming Old Town of Caceres, your guide will point out several imposing manor houses still adorned with centuries-old coats of arms and family crests. Why are there so many? After Columbus arrived in the Americas, many young men left Caceres to find their fortune, and returned home decades later as wealthy men. These powerful families invested heavily to display their wealth, as you can see while admiring the Carvajal Palace or the Becerra House. With so many things to do and so many monuments to visit, the Essential Caceres Free Tour must be the best way to spend a day in this wonderful town. Are you going to miss it? Book your seat now!
