The countryside dresses up in beautiful golds and reds, but the festivities still go on in Extremadura.
The people of Extremadura celebrate their carnival to the utmost; in some towns, they take such care of every detail of this festival, that it has been declared a Festivity of Tourist Interest.
The capital of Cáceres, the flagship of Extremaduran gastronomic excellence, as well as the benchmark for the most discerning palates thanks to its extensive natural resources, was designated the Gastronomy Capital of Spain in 2015.
Several Festivities of Tourist Interest mark a season of light and colour during which Extremadura shines the most.
The summer months in Extremadura fill the calendar with festivities which recover its historical past.
Even though the defining nature of the winter is the lack of light, Extremadura traditions fill these months with colourful festivities.
