We will walk in different landscapes each day, each with a distinct theme. We will be able to customise this itinerary according to your specific interests. The holiday is exclusively yours.

Sierra de Montanchez:
This is one of the most important areas for the production of the high quality
Iberian ham and stands as a mountain range in the centre of Extremadura. The
The dehesas: Much of Extremadura is dominated by the ancient grazing woodlands or dehesas, where evergreen oaks are managed to provide shade and acorns for livestock. The dehesas have a fascinating history and offer a landscape of particular beauty.
Wine and olives: The Sierra de los Lagares is the range of hills where we are based for the week at Casa Rural El Recuerdo. Walks take one through old olive groves and there are also small vineyards. We will visit the local winery and learn more about the production of olives.
|Medieval heritage: No visit to this part of Spain can miss out the opportunity of strolling in the narrow streets of Trujillo and Cáceres, medieval towns with an extraordinary historic heritage of occupation and conquest, manifest today in wonderful architecture of castles, palaces and churches.|
