  • From Madrid to Merida: by plane?

    Mérida Transportation

    Actually, there is an airport in Talavera la Real, Badajoz, about 45 kms. far from Merida. It has some daily flights to Madrid, but I don't think it is very useful to visit Merida. In the end, if you add up how long it takes you to go from Madrid downtown to Barajas Airport, how long you have to arrive there in advance, how long the flight is and...

    It' s Tapas bar at the Plaza... I must say, that I did not especially like the Extremadura restaurants for the food... but I loved the "jamon Patta negra...". So take a glass of fine sherry... I preferred the "oloroso", which is sweet and tasty... and order some Spanish ham... Tapas

  • BULLFIGHTING

    Zafra Things to Do

    The bullfight starts with a trumpet flourish and the bull charging. Anger management is not a bull's strong suit. The peones (the matador's footmen and bullfighters in training) calm things down a bit with capes, and eventually the bull stops running around like crazy. The matador does some high-speed work with the bull, and then the banderilleros...

    El Madrigal stadium , home to Villarreal CF, built in 1923

    The stadium has a capacity of 22,000. A smallish ground apart from where they put the away supporters. This is in a huge stand behind one on the goals. You're put right at the top of thhis stand and have your view of the pitch obscured by netting, stantions and perspex. Not very good considering the tickets for the game were £60 a piece.
