What to see The mediaeval layout that offers remains of the city wall and turrets and gates such as Sol or Santa María. Head to Plaza Mayor square, one of the liveliest spots in the city and home to the Town Hall. The old and new cathedrals are a highlight. The first is in the Romanesque style and the latter has Gothic and Renaissance elements. The Cathedral Museum is home to the ‘Bodas de Caná’ a 14th-century Gothic panel depicting the Marriage at Cana. Other interesting religious buildings include the churches of San Nicolás, San Martín and San Salvador. Plasencia was home to nobility for many years, meaning there are many palaces to view. The Episcopal Palace stands out for its many elements from Spanish Renaissance architecture. Other example include the Carvajal-Girón Palace and that of the Marquises of Mirabel. Nature There are several green areas including Los Pinos, a huge botanical garden and an open-air sculpture museum. For hikers, we recommend a walk along the banks of the Jerte or the trails heading into the Monte Valcorchero on the Sierra de Santa Bárbara. It is also a good starting spot to head to the Valleys of Ambroz and Jerte or the Sierras of Gata and Las Hurdes.
