Have you arrived in the city the day before the conference and you are lost? Would you like to dine but you do not know where? Are you nervous about meeting with colleagues that you have not seen for a long time? Come to the ICWE Get Together Babecue and break the ice joining the local organization team and other colleagues for a casual dinner. This is the best way to start ICWE 2018!
The get together party will be in the restaurant "El Mirador de Galarza" which has nice views over the medieval city of Cáceres. It will start at 21:00 but it will be something informal so joining between 21:00 and 22:00 would be right.
This is the route from the "Plaza Mayor" to the entrance of the restaurant: https://goo.gl/LnXjVT. The restaurant is on the upper terrace of the Obispo Galarza car park.
Daily lunches will be hosted at B-Nomio restaurant which is TripAdvisor’s choice number 1 in Cáceres. The restaurant is ten minutes walk from the conference venue (see the map below). Its chef, Benjamín Caballero, has a long history of training in the most famous kitchens in the country. Currently, he combines B-Nomio with the advice to other restaurants and training activities.
This event includes a guided tour in the monumental city of Cáceres. The visit will end at the Mastropiero Terrace where we will enjoy a reception.
With one of the world’s most intact mediaeval and renaissance city centres, the Council of Europe declared the old town of Cáceres Europe's third historical city in 1968 (after Prague and Tallin) and the UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1986. The historical monuments inside the city walls have borne witness to the different cultures that have lived there
After the guided tour, attendants are invited to a welcome reception at Mastropiero. This terrace has been qualified as one of the most interesting terraces in Spain to have some "tapas" (https://elpais.com/elpais/2017/06/27/fotorrelato/1498562386_555574.html). We will have the opportunity to enjoy a selection of them.

Los Barruecos has an illusory landscape formed from large granite rocks that rise at the edge of four historic reservoirs. It is on scientific interest as geological park, due to the complete catalog of erosive forms in granite wich interact creating impossible hollows in the rocks. Humans, from ancient times, took adavantage of this landscape, giving us numerous samples of rock paintings and cravings and other archeological sites from different periods.
Birdwatching, trekking or other activities organized by the Information Center of Los Barruecos make it an open space to enjoy.
