All our Extremadura collections:

Extremadura offers the best of old Spain, home to some of the country's most beautiful medieval towns and cities, some impressive Roman ruins, great swathes of wonderfully green farm hills and some of inland Spain's finest food. The best places to stay in Extremadura come in a range of shapes and sizes, from luxurious converted palaces to restored farmhouses, but they all tend to have excellent restaurants.

Extremadura is more popular with Spanish travellers than foreign ones, and many of the Spanish are here for the food too. And for the historic sights of Trujilo and Cáceres or the dramatic, open spaces and vast skies of the Parque Nacional de Monfrague.

If you want to see the highlights, you'll need to get yourself lost in the labyrinthine hearts of several towns and cities, where you might come across working Roman theatres and exceptional Roman bridges, an impressive range of buildings inspired by a range of religions, a slew of interesting museums. You should also endeavour to get out into the countryside and explore a little of the region on food. Don't worry, there are plenty of charming hamlets with their impressive farmer's markets to keep you sustained along your journey.
