Museo de Cáceres
The Museo of Cáceres is located in the historic cent- er, considered Human Heritage by UNESCO. The  rst museum board dates from 1917, but the concept was created in 1899, when a group of local history scholars began collecting archaeological and artistic objects.
The exhibitions are divided by different areas: the Casa de las Veletas (a Palace from the 16th century,
probably built over an old Muslim fortress), which holds the Archaeology and Ethnography collections since 1931; the Casa de los Caballos (a former sta- ble), where the collection of Fine Arts was placed in 1992; it also includes the Interpretative Center of the Maltravieso Cave, unique because of its prehistoric 30 clusters of 60 human handprints, discovered from 1951 on.
The Archaeological collection has got artifacts from the Lower Paleolithic to the Middle Ages and the Fine Arts exhibition shows art pieces from the 13th century to Contemporary Art.
