Friday and Saturday
Plasencia, located at the end of the fertile Valle del Jerte, is our final stop. This strategic enclave in the Silver Route is a true gift. You will discover remains of the medieval walls, its turrets (there are still 21 of the original 71) and its doors, such as the one of the Sun or the shutter of Santa María. You will stroll through the Plaza Mayor, a major hub of the busy life of the city. In the Town Hall tower, you will find the Abuelo Mayorga, a figure built in the 13th century and one of the symbols of the city. Besides, you will find one of the most representative monumental complexes of the region, formed by the Romanesque Old Cathedral and the New Cathedral, the surroundings of which offer stunning spots. The medieval aqueduct of San Antón, the Bishop's Palace, the Palaces of the Marquesses of Mirabel, Carvajal-Girón, Las Torres and the convent of San Vicente Ferrer are further areas of particular interest in the city. Just over 20 kilometres away, it would be unforgivable not to go to the Monfragüe National Park and its Biosphere Reserve, a true sanctuary for bird watching where Mediterranean forests and the most relevant species of Spanish fauna inhabit. Plasencia is also an excellent starting point to discover the Hurdes, the Sierra de Gata or the Valle del Jerte, with its wonderful springtime, when the cherry blossoms paint the valley in bright white.
