Visit Extremadura

Extremadura is a region in the west-central part of Spain, with a rich and varied heritage. This tranquil region is often overlooked by tourists, but there's plenty to explore.

One of the most popular tourist attractions in Extremadura is Caceres, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe. This enchanting city has winding cobblestone streets lined with Renaissance palaces and colorful balconies.

Historically, Extremadura was an important part of the Roman Empire and has references from Julius Caesar himself. During the 16th century, it was also known for its military academies which produced many famous Spanish generals, including Francisco Franco and Hernando de Soto who explored parts of what is now Florida.

Today visitors can sample some delicious local cuisine such as Jamon serrano (cured ham) or traditional dishes like caldereta de cordero (lamb stew). In addition, there are several nature reserves such as Monfrague National Park where visitors can admire birds such as vultures, eagles and storks.
