Overview
More
The Palace of the Golfines de Abajo in Caceres houses an interesting display of artistic patrimony from the Foundation Tatiana Pérez de Guzmán el Bueno. This house museum offers the possibility to know the evolution of nobility through the lineage of the Golfin family, who lived in this land since the 15th century. It is an ambiance museum, which recreates a house of the Caceres nobility and, by walking through, the visitor can learn more about diverse aspects of the daily life of its owners: their taste, fashion, beliefs and hobbies through the rich artistic assets and family documents collected across centuries, with works from the 14th to the 20th century.

Of all the places in Caceres, in the old town we were looking forward to seeing the Palace de los Golfines de Abajo. Sadly we didn't even go in - the staff were very rude and unfriendly. They clearly did not want to bother with...More

This government building was once the headquarters of General Franco. The stone exterior of this palace blends in well with the other buildings in the plaza, and elaborate Mudejar and Renaissance decorative motifs are worth noting. We could not enter but I believe there are...More

Nice older building near a small plaza. Nothing really special but it was cool for a picture and view.
