Visit Spain.


Just north of Andalusia, south of Castile and east of Portugal, influences of all these ways of life are present in Extremadura, but it has an identity and personality all of its own. The most outstanding collection of Roman ruins and art in Spain can be seen in Mérida, the region’s capital, and Cáceres has probably the most intact medieval quarter of any Spanish city, as is shown by the number of period dramas that are shot there. Both are World Heritage Sites. Smaller towns such as Zafra (nicknamed “Sevilla La Chica – The Little Seville”) and Trujillo(where many conquistadors came from) are also well worth a visit, while Guadalupe is home to a third World Heritage Site – an exceptional monastery that’s key to Iberian religious identity.
