MEDIEVAL 15TH CENTURY CASTLE-PALACE

In the middle of the orchard of La Vera and El Tiétar and set among ravines, natural pools, chestnut and oak forrests this castle-palace finds its shelter. Its surroundings feature natural scenery of rare beauty which enhance the richness of this historical and monumental setting which, for several months, was home to an illustrious guest: Emperor Charles V.

The most outstanding exterior features include the turrets, the parade ground and the excellent swimming-pool, with olive and orange trees. Inside, we find halls with fireplaces, and the recently redecorated rooms which provide an intimate and peaceful atmosphere. In the restaurant, 'migas extremeñas' (fried breadcrumbs), potato soup, partridge stew, lamb loin in honey and La Vera fig compote are some of the dishes which stand out among the varied fare to be found in Extremadura cuisine.
