As we headed north out of Merida toward Salamanca, we passed Cáceres and decided to pull over, explore the old town and have lunch.
Cáceres is a city in the Extremadura region, founded by the Romans. The city has a cool old town called Ciudad Monumental with a mix of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
Moorish walls dating back to the 12th century encircle the city.
Walk the old cobbled streets between the fortified houses, palaces, and churches.
