Extremadura Favorites

  • Land of pastoral beauty

    Extremehard is, economically, the least favoured of the Spanish regions. For centuries, the lack of opportunities has turned this land into a source of emigrants to other Spanish regions and to the rest of the world. The lack of infrastructures and large industrial facilities, however, has allowed for the preservation of an environment of serene...

  • Extremadura web site

    I have to say that this Extremadura web is one of the best I have seen from many communities of Spain. In many languages, lots of excursions and tourist information. Well worth to check if you plan to visit this area.http://www.turismoextremadura.com/ingles/guiaprofesional/home.htmlThere is another one, but this one only in Spanish, but if you want...

  • Plasencia

    Plasencia is north of Cáceres and is the second largest town in the province.

  • Merida web page

    Another good page, but I am afraid only in Spanish, the best is that you can print from here a map of Merida, so it will help you in your trip planning.http://www.merida.es/callejero.aspalso some routes aroundhttp://www.merida.es/rutas.asp


    This town is famous as Francisco Pizzaro who led the expedition that conquered the Inca Empire in Peru in the 16th century was born thereI did not expected Trujillo to be so charming, a friend of work was from there and always was talking about the city, so we headed there, and we did not regret it.


    Established by the Romans it posses an incredible restored collection of Roman buildings.It is recommended to visit the theatre, temple, amphiteather etc...It is supposed to be the best roman ruins in Spain

  • Location

    Extremadura is an Autonomous Community situated in the Centre of Spain, bordered by Castilla y Leon on the North, Castilla la Mancha to the East, Andalucia on the South and Portugal on the West. This Autonomous Community is “divided” into 2 Provinces, namely: Cáceres and Badajoz. From the mentioned, I have visited some destinations in all of them,...

  • Countryside and weather

    The countryside in Extremadura is also pleasant and nice to enjoy, ranging from plains and a somewhat arid landscape in its lower side, and a greener mountainous area and Natural Parks on the North of Cáceres Province. Weather can be tough in Extremadura, as summer months are very very hot and winter is most times cold.

  • Villages and Towns in Extremadura

    In Extremadura, an Autonomous Community lacking mass tourism, you will find some amazing Roman ruins in Mérida area and an extremely well kept medieval village built within walls and classified by Unesco as World Heritage - Cáceres, the Monumental City. Trujillo, a most pleasant quiet town, is the birthplace of some of Spain's major conquerors and...

  • Cleaning up consciences

    Like in the rest of central Spain, storks show a preference for nesting on church bell towers. The populations of this mythic bird have boomed in Extremadura in the last decades to a point where there is not a single elevated building or ruin which does not overpopulated with these heavy constructions. We were surprised to see how this forest of...
