In the heart of History
The Parador de Cáceres is made up to two old aristocratic town houses : the Casa de Ovando-Mogollón, Perero y Paredes, built in a Gothic style, and the Palacio de los Marqueses de Torreorgaz, likewise Gothic, but with a Neoclassical façade added in the 18th c., which is now used as the main entrance.
The building is a reflection of the city’s civil architecture of the late Middle Ages, characterised by fortified houses with towers and interior patios where the rooms where distributed. In this building you will find two treasures : one of the few towers remaining in the city, and a 2nd c. Roman tombstone with the original inscription still legible.
