More on Extremadura

Extremadura’s capital city of Mérida, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasts an impressive and scattered array of Roman ruins and art – in fact, the city was once one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire. The city is notably home to the Roman Puente Romano bridge, one of the world’s longest surviving bridges from ancient times and is home to more ancient Roman monuments than any other Spanish city.

Mérida, situated around 140 miles south-west of Madrid, is a brilliant part of the region to explore (best by foot), not only for its ancient architecture but a variety of attractions including museums, bars, restaurants and connecting quaint towns.

Extremadura also offers some gorgeous, unspoiled sceneries, with endless rolling hills, imposing mountainscapes and the rivers Tagus and Guadiana running through its landscapes. Monfragüe National Park is a popular attraction here, as a beautiful green area filled with natural beauties, great walking trails and over 170 bird species –  a birdwatcher’s paradise.

Extremadura is actually a fantastic destination all-year round with a typically continental climate offering hot, dry summers and cool, mostly damp winters. The hottest month of July sees temperatures soar to around 26*C, while the autumn months offer a cooler, quieter Spanish escape.
