How to get to

  • A Cáceres town founded in 16th century, which lies nearby the Silver Way.

    Located in the Monfragüe National Park, the natural setting of this Cáceres town holds a host of surprises for the visitor.

    A stroll around its outskirts affords you a chance to delight in the beauty that typifies the Extremadura countryside while its streets are home to historic buildings such as the parish church of Santa Marina, the chapel of San Roque and the sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de Cabezón.

    The dishes to be savoured there showcase the great culinary tradition of Extremadura as a whole, as clearly exemplified by the orange salad, the "migas" (fried breadcrumbs with chopped bacon and pork, chorizo etc.), the black pudding and the "caldereta" (goat/lamb casseroles). For dessert, you can't leave Cañaveral without tasting its famous limes, as the popular saying goes.

    If you'd like to learn more about its popular customs, there's no better way than to immerse yourself in its fiestas such as those held in honour of San Benito, San José Obrero, the Virgen de Cabezón and San Roque. Dates that you could well to add to your festivities calendar.
