This pleasant, bustling town is the natural hub of northern Extremadura. Rising above a bend of the Río Jerte, it retains long sections of its defensive walls, though they're tricky to spot once you're actually in town. The attractive old quarter of narrow streets, Romanesque churches, stately stone palaces and buzzing tapas bars is worth exploring. Plasencia is also a good base for forays into the nearby La Vera, Jerte and Ambroz valleys.
