Cáceres – Gastronomic City of Spain 2015!
The busy commercial town of Cáceres, chief town of the province in western Spain, lies near the Portuguese frontier in a fertile agricultural area. More than ten towers dominate the historic quarter of Caceres, delimited by Arab walls. Cobbled streets marked by medieval, fortified homes and Renaissance palaces make up the most beautiful sceneries in this city, which was declared World Heritage. A walk through the old walled town takes visitors back to the Middle Ages.
Named Gastronomic City of Spain for 2015 you will find an exciting programme with Culture, Activities and Gourmet experiences.
Cáceres cuisine revolves around pork and its by-products. Shepherd recipes are undoubtedly the most popular traditional dishes throughout the entire province, other traditional dishes include “ropavieja” (“old clothes” – meat in a sauce with egg and tomato). All of these specialities can be accompanied by a glass of Cáceres wine, the quality of which is guaranteed by the Ribera del Guadiana Designation of Origin label. The confectionery from the San Pablo convent is an outstanding example for dessert. The old Comendador de Alcuéscar Palace, also known as the Marqueses de Torreorgaz Palace has been refurbished and converted into a Parador Hotel, one of the most outstanding buildings of the “old”, monumental Cáceres, which originally dates from the 14th century, but which was later refurbished in the 15th and 17th centuries.
