FERRY & HOTEL
Spain > Extremadura > CACERES
Extremadura, one of the lesser known regions of Spain, has no fewer than six UNESCO World Heritage sites one of which is the ancient Roman garrison town of Cáceres, long overlooked by visitors. Surrounded by protective walls dating back to the 16th century, the atmospheric streets of its cobbled historic centre are lined with palaces, mansions and churches where almost every turret and spire is home to an enormous stork's nest, a common sight in this area. The town is also known for its wonderful cuisine, specifically pork as this region is home to the Iberian black pig. Once a 15th century Renaissance Palace, the Parador is fabulously located in the old quarter so everything is on your doorstep. It has been renovated to create accommodation that is traditional yet modern and retains some lovely original features that enhance its personality. Fully equipped using the latest environmentally friendly technology, it has a cafeteria/bar as well as a good restaurant and bedrooms are spacious and air conditioned. Limited free parking on site or hotel garage (500m) approx. 19€/night.
