The city of Cáceres has given its name to all of the province. Situated to the south of the Tajo River, it is the northern most of the two provinces which comprise the region of Extremadura. The origins of Cáceres date back to primitive man Upper Paleolithic times. The caves of Maltravieso and Conejar are proof of this. Cáceres was a important roman town known as Castra Caecilia. It then lost importance with Visigoths and Arabs, who also settled in Cáceres. In the year 1227, Cáceres was incorpored into the Kingdom of León under Alphonse IX. But it is under the rule of Ferdinand and Isabela tha Cáceres has a period of splendour and prosperity. From this moment onward, construction began of numerous palaces and ancestral mansions which give Cáceres its present tone, which is austere but noble linage

============================================================

La ciudad de Cáceres ha dado su nombre a toda la provincia, situada al sur del Tajo. Es la más septentrional de las dos que componen la región extremeña. Sus origenes se remontan al hombre primitivo, del tiempo del paleolitico superior, prueba de ello son las cuevas de Maltravieso y Conejar. Fue importante población romana, conocida como Castra Caecilia, perdió importancia con visigodos y árabes, pueblos que también se asentaron en ella. En el año 1227 se incorpora al reino de León con Alfonso IX, pero es con los Reyes Católicos, cuando conoce un periodo de prosperidad. A partir de ese momento comienza la construcción de numerosos palacios y casas solariegas que dan a la actual Cáceres un tono austero pero de noble linaje

infoLocationless Caches could be considered the opposite of a Traditional Cache. Instead of finding a hidden container, you are given a task to locate a specific object and log its coordinates. A scavenger hunt of sorts, it involves collecting waypoints of various objects around the world.

Locationless caches have evolved into Waymarking. Waymark categories are similar to how locationless caches were listed on geocaching.com, but you can now search for the locations in each category.
