  • Paprika

    The Valley of La Vera produces effectively all of Spain's smoked paprika or pimentón

  • Cherries

    Over 50% of Spain's cherries are grown in the Valley of El Jerte to be eaten fresh or turned into liqueurs, kirsches and preserves

NON VEGETARIAN

You can sample the local non-vegetarian gastronomy in one of Trujillo's plentiful cafés and restaurants in the form of free tapas with a drink or a more substantial paid-for "ración"

Extremadura is home to the black-footed Iberian pig which produces the legendary Iberico ham and related products


WINE

Extremadura's classified wine region (DO), the Ribera Del Guadiana, contains six sub-regions. Trujillo's DO wines are classified under the Cañamero sub-zone
