For this reason many films have been shot here. The Universidad de
Extremadura and two astronomical observatories are also located in Cáceres.
Cáceres was declared a World Heritage City by UNESCO in 1986 because of the

styles, fruit of the many battles fought here throughout history. An amazing
30 towers from the Muslim period still stand in Cáceres, of which the Torre
del Bujaco is the most famous.
