The Silver Route is a nature trail that has linked the Cantabrian Sea with Andalusia’s Atlantic coast since ancient times. The Romans used the route to build a road which they used to transport this precious metal, leaving behind an impressive legacy that will take you through History.
Don’t miss the Amphitheatre Roman House, the Casa del Mitreo Roman House, the ruins of the Santa Eulalia temple, the Roman Bridge over the Guadiana River and Los Milagros Aqueduct. The Arabs and the Visigoths left their mark in the area too, as the Alcazaba Arab Fortress and the Visigoth Art Museum show us.
Its old Castle reminds us of old stories, such as the Pizarro House-Museum. Religious monuments also have a prominent place in this town, such as the Church of San Martín, the Church of Santa María La Mayor or the Convents of Santa Clara and San Francisco Real.
There are also some beautiful sights close to the cathedrals including the bustling Plaza Mayor, the Bishop's Palace, the Palaces of the Marqueses de Mirabel, Carvajal-Girón, Las Torres and the Convent of San Vicente Ferrer.
