Ciudad Rodrigo's quaint and intimate downtown area is definitely worth a stop. Easily walkable, it makes a perfect spot for a stroll, a coffee & dessert and a meal at La Paloma!

The old town of Ciudad Rodrigo is contained within magnificent city walls and is relatively small - so it’s easy to explore on foot. There are almost too many palaces and churches to look at so, if you don’t have time, simply look at some of the magnificent architecture from outside. I haven’t read up on the town’s history, but it is clear from the grandeur of many of the old buildings that it was both wealthy and important.

It is incomprehensible that this lovely town, is not as well known as it deserves. Very important during the middle ages, its historic center is full of palaces. The town is well preseved and has an exvellent Parador (national hotel) that belonged to the father of Isabel the Catholic Queen (of Cristopher Columbus fame and mother of Queen Catherine of Aragon). It is a good budget friendly place to explore the area, Portugal is ten miles away, Port and Salamanca, a short drive away. There are another towns worth visiting near by like Zamora and La Alberca. The absence of turists crowds only adds to its charm.

You cam circumnavigate the city wall in no time, and take in the views and history and still have time for a coffee.

Ciudad Rodrigo old town has got so much to offer. You can walk round the entire city walls for free (2km), both on top and round the outside. This really gives you a feel for how they have changed through the centuries. So much of the actual town has remained unchanged with many historic buildings to visit. The Roman bridge, the medieval castle, the amazing cathedral or the many references to the peninsular wars were amongst the many highlights for us. We stayed in the town for 3 days and unlike other places we have stayed, we didn’t bother getting in the car and travelling to see anything else, as Ciudad Rodrigo had so much to offer on its own.
