If you would like to find the perfect getaway of rural tourism in Cáceres you will need to know where to stay. The northern province of Extremadura will allow you to visit incredible places, such as its Plaza Mayor filled with the most impressive monuments, its palaces, such as the palace of Golfines de Abajo, or its rich, medieval heritage.
But this journey doesn't end in the Middle Ages, for the early Muslim influence is also present in this area, as its capital's city walls, and the palace of Las Veletas testify.
Founded during Roman times, you can move across Cáceres through the Vía de la Plata, a path currently walked by some pilgrims during one of the stages of the pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago, that you will also be able to walk of you decide to stay here.
We also recommend visiting the city of Plasencia and its city walls and cathedral from the Middle-Ages. But if you're more a of a nature lover, you are in luck because you'll be able to visit the unique, natural reserve of Monfragüe, or the mountains of San Pedro.
Another highlight of this region due to its beautiful views, is the valle del Jerte, named after the river that crosses the valley, and where you will be able to see, if you're lucky, its one-of-a-kind white and pink show of blossoming cherry trees.
Finish your visit with a taste of the local gastronomy, with Pimentón de la Vera, a local condiment similar to paprika, as its star product, protected as PDO of a small region within this province where it is produced.
