About Estremadura

Estremadura is the heart of rural Portugal, a rich land of emerald hills and valleys dotted with historic market towns serving delicious local specialities. Running up one side of Estremadura is the Atlantic coast, miles of windswept beautiful coastline - very popular with surfers. There's plenty of choice when it comes to seeking out the best places to stay in Estremadura, lots of small treasures offering peace and delicious food amongst beautiful scenery.

Estremadura is a great place for foodies, and many of the region's highlights have something to do with eating. Even when you're visiting Estremadura's spectacular abbeys and monasteries, you'll find there's still a foodie element to the displays.

Estremadura is also home to Portugal's largest cave system, an important dinosaur fossil monument, numerous fortresses, some spectacular walking trails, a number of interesting local museums and several notable castles.
