A stay here is like travelling back to medieval times, when it was the headquarters for the Masters of the Order of Santiago and the Spanish Inquisition.Read more...

What to see The old town centre, home to many convents, churches and palaces in a sublime fusion of Gothic-Mudejar and Baroque. We recommend the church of Nuestra Señora de la Granada, the Inquisition Courtyard and the Bishop's Palace. Many of the town's monumental religious buildings are the result of its close ties to medieval military orders. For instance, Santiago church and the convents of La Concepción, La Merced and Santa Clara. The most important civil architecture includes Palacio Maestral, the Episcopal Palace, the Consistorial Palace and Los Zapatas palace. Strolling around the old town centre, you'll also discover many impressive houses with coats of arms and plasterwork decorations. Gastronomy Here you can try some authentic Extremadura cuisine. We especially recommend “sopa dorada” (a wholesome vegetable soup), stewed hare, partridge with sage, roast lamb and lamb casseroles. The area is also famous for the sweet treats made at Las Clarisas Convent. Trips The surrounding area is full of quaint towns and villages. We recommend two in particular. Firstly, Fregenal de la Sierra, with whitewashed houses and monumental churches. Secondly, Zafra, a medieval town on the Silver Route.
