Cáceres, like many other towns and villages across the Iberian peninsula, has a multicultural historic past: the Romans were the first ones to settle here, and later on during the middle ages, Arabs, Jewish and Christians lived together in relative harmony for several centuries.
A few days ago, the girls and I went to visit a traditional Arab house from the 12th century, now turned into a museum. We were able to walk through the different rooms in it, and admire objects from daily life back in the day, many of them found in excavations around the area. I have to say we thought it was very cool, and the guide told us a ton of interesting facts.
This Arab house-museum, in case you ever want to visit it, is called Yusuf Al Borch. I´m not a big fan of taking pictures, but I did take one of this courtyard window (I love Arab style arches):
And I also took a photo of this proverb, which I remember having written somewhere, years ago:
Do not say everything you know, Do not do everything you can, Do not believe everything you hear, Do not spend everything you earn. Because… The one who says everything they know, The one who does everything they can, The one who believes everything they hear, (And spends everything they hear) Often… Says what is not convenient, Does what they should not do, Judges what they do not see, And spends what they do not own.
