Extremadura’s Highlights
Extremadura has not been really discovered by foreign tourists still today.
The World Heritage sites Merida, Caceres and Guadalupe, the impressive history and the lush nature are worth being visited.
 
Kunst, Kultur & Feste  
Art, Culture and popular Feats
A great deal of different races have lived Extremadura and thus had a huge impact on its culture and inhabitants. Roman, Visigoths, Arabs and Christians had left their mark in architecture, art and are rooted in the tradition of Extremadura till today.
 
Need a little bit Nature?
Wit a surface area of Switzerland and one million inhabitants living mostly in major cities, Extremadura shelters an impressive fauna and flora.
 
 
Extremadura’s Past
Extremadura’s past times have characterised the region and are a constituent part of it till today. Romans, Muslims, the re-conquest as well as Franco’s obsession have left deep marks and bear witness to a colourful past.
 
Extremadura, a country of savourers
In Extremadura you can feel free to do whatever you want, except: testing Caldereta, drinking red wine, tasting the Iberian ham and taking a notepad along to write down some recipes here and there.
 
 
Ornithology
In Extremadura ornithologists do not have to wait a long time, they just need to keep their eyes open. White storks nest on towers and house tops all over the country. Griffon vultures fly directly over people’s heads.
 
Accommodations
It is common knowledge that it is hard to find appropriate accommodation for the holidays, and unfortunately in this regard Extremadura is not an exception. Isn’t it a torture to have to decide between Guadalupe, a small mountain village located near a World Heritage Site, the valley of cherries or a hotel in the immediate vicinity of a dreamy lake?.
 
 
Congresses
Badajoz has been a fortified town for a long time. The inner city is surrounded by massive halls. Two architects came to the conclusion that the fortress has served its time and the time has come for something new, and so built a congress centre with the town wall as a back wall.
 
Golf & Wellness
Extremadura is reflected in the golf courses and wellness facilities of the country. Oak trees are growing on golf grounds; the water of El Raposo first healed an Iberian pig a long time ago and then men cam and built a health spa.
 
 
Learning Spanish
Spanish courses are becoming popular in Extremadura owing to the particular support fro language students there. In Caceres they con either stay in a guest house or with a family, where they have the opportunity to learn all the idioms that can not be found in school books. Anyone who is not satisfied with these kinds of accommodation will be able to live with their teacher.
