Route 1. Start. Caceres Main Square

The first route that we propose begins in the Main Square of Cáceres. This rectangular square is slightly sloping toward the North. It's mainly arcaded since 16th century, except some areas next to the city wall.

This esplanade outside the walls was used as a venue for markets and fairs, until it became the centre of social and commercial life because of the city growth.

From the Square's centre we can see part of the city wall of Cáceres as well as some important monuments we are going to visit, including the main entrance to the walled city: the Arch of the Star, at the end of a granite staircase.
