What to see in Caceres
The building that currently serves as the City Hall of Caceres is a two-story construction with an unmistakable Neoclassical architectural style. It was built from 1867 to 1869 and was the work of the famous architect Ignacio María de Michelena.
Located on the entire front of the Main Square, the City Hall has a superb, solid construction that rises thanks to a staircase. Its highlights include a splendid façade with a magnificent porticoed atrium, in which five semicircular arches can be seen.
Above its noble floor is a balcony, supported by corbels, where the plenary room is located. The windows of its noble floor, which are parallel to each of the semicircular arches of the façade, are classically rectangular and crowned by a triangular ornament that gives them an elegant and ornamental appearance.
Finally, the balustrade, broken in the centre by a triangular pediment, stands out. In its centre is a clock. The heraldry of the city of Caceres is above the third window, in the centre of the building.
In addition to its institutional importance and strategic location, the Town Hall is pleasant to see, especially during the evening/night when the lamps in each arch and the interior and hidden luminaires in its colonnade give it an intoxicating and interesting appearance. It has become a tourist attraction thanks to its dignified and monumental style typical of a solid institution.
