8 things to do

All Places Spain

La Habana Café-Bar

A lively bar which draws visitors for coffee and chat in the afternoons and drinks and dancing at night. Very lively at weekends and known for serving excellent Mojitos. Very reasonably priced and the staff are extremely efficient and helpful. The bar also has a great focus on art, housing the vibrant Habana Espacio Libre art gallery in an adjoining apartment.

DRINK   —  c/ Pizarro, 1

Hostal Hernán Cortés

Quaint little Hostal situated in the modern area of town, behind the post office. Only 5-10 minutes walk from all the main attractions. The Hostal is old-fashioned and basic. However, it is very clean and great value for money and has a very helpful and friendly staff. Perfect for a short break if you don't intend to spend much time indoors.

Hotel Cáceres Golf

Excellent hotel located a few miles outside Cáceres town on a Golf Complex. Accommodation and meals are of an extremely high standard. The hotel is not well situated for those arriving without a car, as public transport to this area is limited.

El Corral de las Cigueñas

Lively bar in the old part of town. By day a relaxing place to have a drink with friends, by night the home of some of the best live bands in Cáceres. Enjoys a mixed crowd, and is popular among students.

Pza. San Juan 11. The NH Palacio de Oquendo is an entirely renovated ancient palace dating from the 16th Century, situated next to the main shopping area and within the Roman and Arabic walls.
