Our visit was completely spoiled by the poor and unhelpful attitude of the staff. I spoke to the guide beforehand and mentioned that neither my wife or I understood Spanish. The guide was clearly able to speak English reasonably well. I asked if the guide...More

You can only visite this palace by taking part in one of the guided tours (that I think are only in Spanish but I'm not sure). However, the rooms of the Palace are very well maintained and the visite is very informative.

The tour is in Spanish only but don't let that stop you. The interiors of this palace are utterly superb and the paintings, tapestries and furniture as good as any you will find. That and the family history make this a sheer delight. If you...More

This palace is grand and impressive, and gives a good view into the history of wealthy and prominent noblemen. Also, France once used this palace, oddly enough. You can only visit it via a guided tour, and these are often only in Spanish, so do...More

Impressive palace built by the secretary of queen Isabella in 15th century. No English tour available except for pre-arranged groups. No English audio. Also no English explanations next to artifacts. Typical for Spain. Palace is beautiful with old tapestry, antiques, paintings. Both 18th and 19th...More

Absolutely fantastic! The building is spectacular and the interior takes your breath away, it's a real trip back in time to the XV Century. The Palace of Golfines de Abajo, where the Catholics Kings, Fernado and Isabel, would stay when they would visit the city,...More

Of all the places in Caceres, in the old town we were looking forward to seeing the Palace de los Golfines de Abajo. Sadly we didn't even go in - the staff were very rude and unfriendly. They clearly did not want to bother with...More

This government building was once the headquarters of General Franco. The stone exterior of this palace blends in well with the other buildings in the plaza, and elaborate Mudejar and Renaissance decorative motifs are worth noting. We could not enter but I believe there are...More

The palace can only be visited in a tour , leaving on the hour. The rate is reasonable but on our visit all the tours were only in Spanish which is disappointing. The guide could easily sum up her story in a few English sentences...More
