Fodor's Review

Travel back a few centuries in Cáceres's Ciudad Monumental (aka casco antiguo or ciudad vieja), one of the best-preserved medieval quarters in Europe. It's so convincingly ancient that Game of Thrones used it as a filming location in 2017: there isn't a single modern building to detract from its aura. It's virtually deserted in winter and occasionally dusted with a light coating of snow—quite a sight to behold. Most of the city's main sights are located here, but of Cáceres's approximately 100,000 residents, only 380 reside within this tiny enclave.
