Seducing palates

The capital of the province of Cáceres, a standard bearer of the gastronomical excellence of Extremadura, not to mention a model for finer palates thanks to its wonderful natural larder, has earned itself the title of gastronomy capital of Spain 2015 through its own merits.

Cáceres welcomes and surprises in equal proportions, not only because it contains the third most important monumental ensemble in Europe, but also as the ideal setting for a gastronomy route through the culinary excellences of Extremadura. Recipes inherited from the Roman, Arab and Jewish cultures, in conjunction with traditional Spanish cuisine, mean that of Cáceres can be considered authentic fusion cuisine. As a result, one can enjoy both the more traditional gastronomy of Extremadura and highly innovative proposals in this town, in prestigious restaurants recognised on both a national and international level.

The region of Extremadura provides quality produce that fills up dishes with flavour and the exquisite aromas of Iberian ham, cheeses, paprika, cherries, olive oil, veal, lamb and wine. No wonder then that Extremadura should have 8 Denominations of Origin and 2 Protected Geographical Indications.

But the gastronomy of Cáceres is not only for tasting - one can also experience it through traditions and experiences. In and around Cáceres there are routes and festivals related to good food, like the flowering cherry festival, declared a Festival of National Tourist Interest, the Trujillo National Cheese Festival, and the Dehesa de Extremadura Iberian Ham Route or the Ribera del Guadiana Wine Route.

A world of experiences and sensations that will delight visitors to Cáceres, designated the gastronomy capital of Spain 2015 by the Spanish Hotel and Catering Trades Federation and the Spanish Tourism Writers and Journalists Federation.
