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.

To the left of the Cathedral stands one of the few open palaces - Palacio de Carvajal. It is also known as the burnt house, derived from the 19th century fire. This attractive building highlights include a facade made of granite ashlar masonry, semicircular arched...More

We were told we could walk around the building and that there were videos. They were not of interest, but we got a good map and some additional information. There were free toilets available, too.

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.

Arrived in Caceres on Sunday afternoon, and were pleasantly surprised to find everything open for visits. So unusual for Spain. Good to begin your visit to Caceres at the Palace of Carvajal where you get an overview of the old town, the ramparts, gates and...More

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
