Casttles and Conquistadores Spain
  Land of Castles & Conquistadores

Your travels start in Extremadura, one of the most remote and unique regions of Spain and home of Conquistadores Hernan Cortes and Francisco Pizarro. Due the many Conquistadores that came out of this region, Extremadura left a very important imprint on the history of Spain and the Americas during the 16th century.

You’ll stay in the 15th century former Castle, now a magnificent Parador in the medieval town of Oropesa, as well as other historic manors and palaces along the way. From there you’ll explore this beautiful forgotten land beyond the River Douro. You’ll feel like you just stepped through a time warp and into the Middle Ages when you wander through quaint cobbled streets leading to historic castles and manors.

Your tour will also take you to the city of Caceres close to the Portuguese border, where you’ll also find yourself surrounded by 15th and 16th century Spain. Then go back even further in time when you visit one of the most important cities during the Roman occupation Mèrida, capital of the ancient Roman province of Lusitania, which controlled southwestern Spain and Portugal. Your travels will end in magnificent Toledo, Spain’s most important city in Spain for over 500 years.
