Turismo Extremadura TurEspaña

Welcome to Extremadura,

A safe, friendly, uncrowded destination where we want you to feel at home.

Extremadura is a region in southwest Spain rich in agriculture nestled alongside Portugal and easily accessible from Lisbon, Madrid and Seville. There is a history of Romans, Visigoths, Christians, Moors and Sephardi Jews that can be seen in the monuments of our towns, and reflected in the recipes and ingredients of our meals, tapas and modern cuisine. Archaeological remains, castles, churches and cathedrals, Jewish quarters, towers and bridges are scattered throughout the geography of Extremadura which make for a fascinating itinerary.

Our region is divided into two provinces, Badajoz and Cáceres, which are the two largest in Spain. Together they cover an area roughly the size of Massachusetts and Connecticut, but with a population of just 1,051,738 inhabitants.
