Roman theatre at Mérida
Mansions of Cáceres
Monastery of Guadalupe
Although not a huge tourist destination, Extremadura has a lot to offer any visitor. With the lowest population density of any region, it has a corresponding richness in wildlife – in spring and summer the countryside is full of wildflowers and storks can be seen nesting on rooftops and church spires.
Extremadura also has a formidable collection of historic monuments, such as the Roman theatre at Mérida, which still hosts performances today, and the cluster of Renaissance mansions at Cáceres. The other place to see is Guadalupe monastery, though a long trek up winding mountain roads is required to get to it.
