Outside the walls, explore the vast open space of the elegant Plaza Mayor, which is dominated by the church of St Martin of Tours and where three of the town’s most important Renaissance ducal palaces can be found, including the Palace of the Conquest, built by the Pizarro family.

Explore the historic core of Caceres after breakfast at the hotel. Not to be outdone by its provincial neighbour, the medieval walled old town of Caceres is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, packed with fortified homes, Renaissance palaces and historic churches. The walled area is compact and there are two main clusters of monuments. In the Santa Maria-Golfines area can be found the Renaissance Toledo-Moctezuma Palace as well as the Co-cathedral of St Mary. The area around the Plaza de las Veletas-Plaza San Mateo is dominated by the 15th century Cigüeñas Palace. Drive along the southern stretch of the ancient Silver Way to Merida, which was one of the Roman capitals of Spain.
