Additionally, the city of Cáceres dons the past with its Gothic and Roman architecture and cobbled streets. The largest city, Badajoz, is located just 6km from the border with Portugal. Furthermore, Extremadura is also home to Monfragüe National Park, one of the greatest locations in Spain for birdwatching.

Extremadura is not a popular choice among foreign buyers. However, that could be part of its great appeal to you. Extremadura has the feel of preservation of a Spain from long ago, as seen by its magnificent ancient amphitheatre and its copious amounts of unspoiled natural life. As a result of not being a popular choice among international buyers, property is considerably more affordable than elsewhere.
