Extremadura's reputation for having an unspoilt landscape was attractivce for foreign travellers already some thirty years ago. Birds of prey, in particular, are well represented here. The numbers of griffon and black vultures are exceptionally high, and there are healthy populations of eagles, including the impressive Spanish Imperial Eagle, which is confined to the south-western Iberian Peninsula. Of prime importance is Monfragüe National Park, where most raptors can be seen with relative ease, and the vulture colonies allow impressive views.

Extremadura is dominated by dehesas, an unique landscape of extensive open oak woodland and pasture that seems more in keeping with an African savannah than part of Europe. Dehesas cover hundreds of thousands of hectares of the rolling Extremaduran hills, their expanses occasionally broken by sudden, rocky mountainous outcrops or steep river gorges. Other areas are devoid of trees, and covered instead by a type of steppe of herbs, grasses and tough retama brooms.

This book introduces you to this fascinating region and provides you with itineraries to discover the area at your own pace
