Good luck!


"We can mention the “aljibe” or cistern (P 11) as a monument of this time, located in the Palace of “las Veletas”, the present Provincial Museum, which is in the heart of the old part of this city, which was worthy of being declared Heritage for Mankind. The aforementioned “aljibe”, which is very-well preserved, completes the always instructive visit to one of the best museums in Extremadura."
