Conquistadors ride/ EXTREMADURA

7days/ 6 nights/ 5 days riding/ Trujillo (Extremadura) is a Spanish city located in the province of Cáceres, in the Extremadura region; famous for its monuments. It was the birthplace of Francisco Pizarro and his brothers, conquerors of Peru, as well as of Francisco de Orellana, who accomplished the first descent of the River Amazon.

Pizarro's equestrian statue stands in the Plaza Mayor (Main Square), is one of the most important monuments together with the castle (old Arab fortress IX century) and the church of Santa María (XIII century).

Some Trujillanos went to America in XV century to discover new places after the discovery of America. When they come back, they built majestic palaces near the Plaza Mayor and surrounds, most of them can be visited today. Francisco Pizarro came back and helped enrich his family in the Plaza Mayor. His daughter from an Incan princess returned at 18 to marry her uncle and lived the rest of her life in Trujillo as a lady of great estate.
EXTREMADURA it should be one of the interest to all nature lovers who are thinking of visiting this fascinating part of unspoilt Spain. Extremadura is considered one of the most important regions in Europe for birds it is among the most prized destinations for birdwatching enthusiasts and nature lovers from all over the world, drawn by the possibility of observing birds in natural habitats of great beauty and also of enjoying the interesting cultural and historical heritage of Extremadura.
It is without a doubt an authentic paradise due to the excellent state of conservation of its natural habitats, in which Mediterranean vegetation finds one of its best expressions. Wood pasture (dehesa) is the most emblematic landscape of the region and plays a crucial role in the great diversity of birds, as many species are closely associated with this valuable habitat. But this territory also brings together a great variety of habitats that make up a complex mosaic, from high mountain landscapes, passing through the extensive pasture lands of the peneplains, the dense Mediterranean forest formations that still cover the sides of many mountains and riverbanks.
