For one of the most ancient cities in Spain, Caceres in Extramadura, western Spain, is only now being "discovered" and as with Jerez and Cordoba and Ronda is well worth the visit. The outskirts aren't prepossessing, usual modern blocks of flats and retail parks, but oh the old centre is a treasure. And a World Heritage City. Stone battlements, tiny winding streets (mostly traffic free but accessible by car if you are staying in the old town and hold your nerve at the wing-mirror scraping width of a couple of streets), churches to visit and a deliciously comfortable Parador de Caceres (with its very handy 30% discount for over 55s) in a converted 14th century stone palace. But of course Caceres was built on top of a hill and with the main restaurant area being lower down, and all the usual Spanish and Moorish towers to climb, you get plenty of exercise! Views are good though.

    It must be about 20 years since I last went to Spain and I must admit to thoroughly enjoying Cordoba and beautiful Ronda (even if the journey there was somewhat hairy back then along the narrow mountain road) Your article has certainly evoked some pleasant memories and if I am lucky enough to go again I would like to include Caceres, as it sounds delightful. Many thanks for the review.

    Sadly it was the first rain in a month (early November!) so I wasn't inspired to get out my camera. Will look for tourist board pictures.

    Sounds absolutely wonderful. Would be even nicer if there are some pictures.
