Located in the interior of Spain, in the north of the region of Extremadura. Its capital is the city of Cáceres, whose historic town has been declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The Royal Monastery of Santa María de Guadalupe, also in the province of Cáceres, shares the same distinction.
Cáceres is a favourite place for birdwatchers due to its wealth of natural resources, which include the Monfragüe National Park and a nature reserve. The Jerte valley is also well worth visiting in spring to see the cherry trees in blossom.
