MEDIEVAL 15TH CENTURY
CASTLE-PALACE In the
middle of the orchard of La Vera and El Tiétar and set among ravines, natural
pools, chestnut and oak forrests this castle-palace finds its shelter. Its
surroundings feature natural scenery of rare beauty which enhance the richness
of this historical and monumental setting which, for several months, was home to
an illustrious guest: Emperor Charles V. The most outstanding exterior features
include the turrets, the parade ground and the excellent swimming-pool, with
olive and orange trees. Inside, we find halls with fireplaces, and the recently
redecorated rooms which provide an intimate and peaceful atmosphere. In the
restaurant, 'migas extremeñas' (fried breadcrumbs), potato soup, partridge stew,
lamb loin in honey and La Vera fig compote are some of the dishes which stand
out among the varied fare to be found in Extremadura cuisine.
