Conexiones students explore a new world.

Cáceres

 

Cáceres is the second largest city in Extremadura. Cáceres lies on a hill and is characterized by its constant evolution in history from Roman times until the present day. Many cultures have left their mark on Cáceres' rich history: Romans, Moors, Jews and Medieval Christians all called Cáceres home. In the course of the centuries, the old city of Cáceres has preserved the air of an Arab city transformed into a medieval city complete with palaces and fortified houses of rival families. Arab and Gothic influence, Italian Renaissance, art from the Americas..., all of these can be found in this unique city.

Included in the visit to Cáceres students will enjoy beautiful churches, fascinating museums and an educational glimpse into the history of Extremadura.
