Almost infinite in size, it is located in a large area of the estate and surrounded by the native flora of Extremadura. It also has a pool bar where you can enjoy delicious tapas and taste some of the local wines, sparkling wines or a refreshing cocktail.

And if the pool, an incomparable setting and the local gastronomy were not enough, this spring Hospes Palacio de Arenales has prepared a wide list of experiences to live the region to the fullest:

Private and personalized cultural tours and visits

The 12th century Bujaco Tower, the Santa María Co-cathedral, the Carvajal Palace, the Arab cistern, the Jewish quarter… Cáceres is for many a great unknown beauty. For this reason, Hospes Palacio de Arenales offers its visitors private and personalized tours of three hours to discover all that the capital of Extremadura has to offer.

It houses a select collection of decorative arts and unique pieces, as well as an impressive weapons room, one of the few that still exists in Spain.

Picnic and horseback ride in Los Barruecos

For those who prefer natural environments, Hospes Palacio de Arenales proposes to discover the park of Los Barruecos on foot or on horseback.
