Our Neighbourhood

The region of Extremadura is divided into two provinces: Cà¡ceres in the north, and Badajoz in the south.

History lovers will find an amazing number of cultural treasures here, and the capital, Cà¡ceres, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986.

More about the neighbourhood

The Old Town of Cà¡ceres is surrounded by walls, and you get into the city through a gate called Arco de la Estrella (the Star Gate), which dates from the thirteenth century.

The cobbled streets are lined by medieval houses and Renaissance palaces, and there are many similar buildings around the Plaza de Santa Marà­a too: the Carvajal Palace (from the fifteenth and sixteenth century), the Mayoralgo Palace and the Episcopal Palace, and the fifteenth century Gothic Cathedral complements and completes this wonderful group of buildings in a most satisfactory way.

One of the most beautiful buildings in the city is the Palacio de los Golfines de Abajo, with its impressive façade and remarkable frieze.

And then there are the stately homes too, of which there are quite a few: those of Cà¡ceres-Ovando, Paredes-Saavedra and Lorenzo de Ulloa for instance, to mention just three of the most spectacular.

Outside the walls there is a magnificent flight of stairs, leading to Plaza Mayor.

On the outskirts of the city there is the Shrine of Nuestra Seà±ora de la Montaà±a (Our Lady of the Mountain), which is built at the top of Sierra Mosca, and from where you have the most lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

Through the province runs the famous Ruta de la Plata (the Silver Route), which originally linked Seville and Astorga for the transport of metals. However, later on it was used by pilgrims, as part of the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage path.

About Us

We are a married couple with two little girls.

We don't smoke.

We would treat any house we would be staying in with greatest care and respect, and we would expect the same in return.

We would really like to go to Ireland in July 2013, but we are open to other suggestions too.
