Toegangen en omgeving

Culturele informatie

The ancient presence of man in these lands is shown in the cave paintings of the Castillo cave. The Castillo cave of Monfragüe, of Arabic origin, dominates an impressive rocky area on the waters of the Tajo River. Also worth visiting is the Puente del Cardenal bridge and the village of Villarreal de San Carlos. Very interesting locations, such as Plasencia, Trujillo and Cáceres, await in the surrounding areas.
