Home - Spain - Extremadura

Extremadura, a western Spanish region bordering Portugal, comprises the provinces of Cáceres and Badajoz. It’s a remote area of mountains, forests, lakes and reserves, notably Monfragüe National Park and Cornalvo Natural Park, both sheltering diverse birdlife. The capital, Mérida, is known for Roman ruins of Augusta Emerita, including the Teatro Romano, Circo Romano, aqueducts and a bridge over the Guadiana River.
