Cáceres is the capital of Cáceres province, in Extremadura, Spain. Though small in population, Extremadura was the source of many of the early Spanish conquerors and settlers in America – Hernán Cortés, Francisco Pizarro, Hernando Pizarro, Hernando de Soto, and Vasco Núñez de Balboa, to name a very few, were all born in Extremadura.

In 1986, Cáceres was declared a World Heritage City by UNESCO because of its blend of Roman, Moorish, Northern Gothic, and Italian Renaissance architecture. Thirty towers from the Moorish rule still stand, of which the Torre del Bujaco is the most famous.

That is what you are looking at.
