This palace is now the tourist office, so in any case worth a visit. You cannot go through the whole palace though, but the courtyard is nice, the people are friendly, their opening times favorable.

Generally the site of the tourist information centre there is not very much to see. The garden is pleasant. Probably gives an idea to how the homes of the wealthy were structured. Not able to visit rooms or go upstairs. There are free toilets however.

Must be one of the most architecturally impressive Tourist Offices. Gives a good interpretation of the entire region. Nice walled garden and exhibits.

We came here because it seemed to be one of the few palaces that you could look around in Caceres. Unfortunately, we visited at a time when most of the rooms were closed. The only things we could see were the model of Caceres, which...More

This is a large building with an interesting model of the city in the entrance that took one guy over 10,000 hours to make. The garden and inner courtyard are very attractive, especially at night with few people about. There is also a tourist information...More
