For one of the program’s possible overnight trips, the group will visit Cáceres.
The old quarter of Cáceres was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. Is one of the most complete and best conserved town centers in Europe. The city wall divides its space into two main areas. Inside the city walls, we find the lion’s share of the best known buildings from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, such as the Cathedral of Santa María, the Palacio de las Veletas, the palaces of the Golfines, la Casa del Sol or the Bujaco Tower.
The origin of the city and of its old quarter goes back to 34 B.C., the year in which was founded the roman Norbona Caesarina, Cáceres. Many places and monuments you can see now in the old quarter were built on the XIII Century, and which were at their peak during the Catholic Monarchs era, fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
