Old Town of Cáceres

An hour’s train ride north from Merida is Caceres, where on arrival I helped an Australian couple differentiate between the arrival and departure time posters and in return they very kindly gave me both of their city maps – one being better for the historic area and the other for the surrounding streets. I wandered around town looking for a hotel but being unable to find a one star was forced to go upmarket to two stars. It was jolly nice though although I have a feeling I brought the tone of the place down a notch or two.

Caceres has a small but delightful historic centre, with some encircling wall remaining and seemingly made of up lots of little interlocking cobbled open spaces and linking alleys all full of buildings in a variety of styles from the 14th to 16th centuries built in an attractive light biscuit coloured stone.

And here it is in Lego, photographed perched on the railing of my hotel balcony:
