Cáceres, Spain

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 was also founded by the Romans, and has a cool old town called Ciudad Monumental with a mix of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.

Like many of these old towns, it’s a wonderful experience walking the old cobbled streets between the fortified houses, palaces, and churches.
