Fodor's Review

Just up the hill behind Cáceres's Ciudad Monumental is this 18th-century shrine dedicated to the city's patron saint. The complex is built on a mountain with glorious views of Cáceres Viejo, especially at sunset. The view is worth the 15-minute drive—or even the grueling two-hour walk—despite the rather mundane interior of the church (the golden Baroque altar is the only exception). To get here, follow Calle Cervantes until it becomes Carretera de la Montaña; the sanctuary is just off the town tourist map, which you can pick up from the local tourist office.
