  • Unless you access the old town at the other end of it, this is the entry point to the World Heritage Site that is the old town. Come in and I recommend you look towards the Plaza Mayor and you will see a virgin in a niche that you do not expect to find. It's pretty charming.

  • The Arch of the Star is the main access road from the Plaza Mayor to the intramural area where the bulk of the tourist attractions (palaces, churches, etc.) are located.

  • Brilliant and almost tourist free
  • It was an old security gate on the wall surrounding the city of Cáceres. Over time, extra-mural buildings were built and their usefulness lost. Then an important person who had resources requested its restoration and granted it, creating this arch, whose curiosity is that it is designed to turn left, where the restorer had his residence. Its name comes that the bow was crowned by a Virgin of the star. The highlight of this door is that through it they crossed Alfonso IX and the Catholic Monarchs to swear the jurisdictionof the city.
