Welcome to the land of water, of large holm and cork oak meadowlands, of traditions and legends. Extremadura goes hand in hand with nature, historical and art heritage, tourism and gastronomy. With gorges of crystal-clear waters, this is the Autonomous Community with the highest number of blue flags in inland waters, and is one Europe’s most important birdwatching tourism destinations.
Extremadura is also a paradise for practicing astrotourism, with one of the clearest skies in southern Europe. A hotbed of excellent-quality produce that, combined with the warmth and hospitality of its people, invite you to discover a land of aromas and flavours. Two united provinces trace the outline of an idyllic land where you can discover a different way of looking at life.
Heritage, culture and gastronomy shape the identity of Extremadura, an autonomous community with a population of just over one million, located in the central-western region of the Iberian Peninsula. This strategic location has made this region the recipient of the main cultures of every age, which have been gradually leaving their imprint on the peninsula since prehistoric times. Romans, Muslims, Jews and Christians, among others, have left their legacy and many examples of heritage and traditions on this land. Made up of the two most extensive provinces in Spain, Badajoz and Cáceres are the most populous cities in the region.
Thus, Extremadura has a network of conference centres in the two provincial capitals: in Merida -the autonomous capital- and in Plasencia. In the same way, Villanueva de la Serena Conference Centre forms part of the Network of Conference Centres of Extremadura.
Extremadura is a well-connected region. Not far from cities such as Madrid, Seville or Lisbon, with a well-structured urban and rural fabric, boasting services for staging MICE cultural and tourism events. Its Network of Conference Centres is a cutting-edge example of infrastructures for holding unique events.
The Extremadura Region has one of the best-conserved and diverse natural environments in southern Europe. Extremadura's territory has more than 50 protected natural areas, four of which have UNESCO recognition; ideal environments for nature observation activities, astrotourism and active tourism.
