Awesome. Fairy tale Amazing. Wonderful. Jewel. Excellent. Beautiful. Really beautiful. Poetry made architecture. Must visit
This is how Extremadura tourists see. These are words written in the last month by tourists who visited the monumental city of Cáceres. And they will read a part of those who are now thinking of knowing one of the reference destinations in Extremadura. These reviews on the Tripadvisor website, one of the most popular among the legion of travelers who use the Internet as a guide for their vacations and getaways, give a clue as to what visitors who come to Extremadura think. For Cáceres, the same as for Mérida, Badajoz or Plasencia, most of the reviews are positive, but not all, of course. In this and other popular Internet sites there are many pats on the back, but there is no shortage of collars. And the festive bridge that started last Thursday is a new opportunity to collect from one and the other.
Just as a majority is more than satisfied with their visit to the historic center of Cáceres, there are those who believe that the Toledo or Segovia complexes are more beautiful. There are also those who believe that charging twelve euros to enter the Roman theater of Mérida is a robbery, who think that eating in the center of Plasencia is excessively expensive and who believes that the Palmas door is not worth it. Although not only the opinions give an idea of the good and the improvement of the region as a tourist destination. The choice of where to go and what to visit is already useful to know what people who choose the autonomous community for their days off.
Tripadvisor has a tab in which users answer the question of what to do at the destination. To be worthwhile as a reference, the five best rated visits in Madrid are, in this order, the Retiro park, the Prado museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, the Santiago Bernabéu football stadium and the Royal Palace. It should be clear that it is not a list of the most beautiful or most important places from a historical or heritage point of view, but of those that best meet the expectations of visitors. There may be surprising presences and absences, but what happens to tastes and colors is already known.
