This small city is a quiet one. It’s one to visit if you’ve seen most of the larger cities in Spain. It has a small plaza Mayor, nothing special and a lovely Cathedral. The Parador de Plasencia is wonderful. We happened to be there during...More

Smaller enough to get around on foot and big enough to be interesting. Stay central for a night or two.

A lovely, small city...easy to get around and you can visit it in a day. Be sure to take one of the walking tours from the Tourist Information Center. This is much better than just walking around, because the guides share the historical information, as...More

The old town of Plasencia is quaint, but there are not very many buildings of interest to visit. The Cathedral is an exception. It is worth a visit, so do go there.

One of the more beautiful ones in the region. Huge altarpiece. Woodden choir. Rich treasury with silver and golden artifacts. Old town with nice square. We stayed at the parador-hotel, a former convent!

Not a great deal to see apart from the old and new cathedrals, which are a must see, but the town is very safe and pleasant to explore the various back streets. There are a couple of quirky museums (textile museum and hunting museum )...More

We wandered around the town for nearly two hours. Unfortunately all the churches and religious buildings were shut in the afternoon and shops closed between 1.30 and 5.30pm. The council could do a lot more to encourage tourism, by ensuring buildings are open in the...More

We read so much about Plasencia and we're looking forward to a great walk around the old city. The city is beautiful but we could not enter any building in our guide book. I gave up after trying to enter 5 churches. If this city...More
