CARTERITA 2 EUR PROOF PAT. M. CÁCERES 23

In the city of Cáceres, the "Ciudad Monumental", "ciudad vieja de Cáceres" or "barrio de Intramuros" is the name given to the part of the old quarter of the city delimited on the outside by its walls.

With two millennia of history, this quarter was founded by the Romans as a colony called Norba Caesarina, and the wall was built to protect it.

After the settlement was abandoned during the period of the great migrations, it was recovered as a hisn during the Andalusian period.

The walled enclosure and the town of Cáceres were one and the same until the end of the 14th century, when, following the consolidation of the Reconquest, the Extramuros district was founded. 

The Intramuros district is internationally renowned for its great examples of stately and religious architecture built over the centuries. The Monumental City has been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest since 1949 and a World Heritage Site since 1986.
