Montánchez is located on top of a hill in the Sierra de Montánchez. The castle can be seen from afar before even reaching Montánchez. A visit to this castle is a must, at least to see the impressive panoramas of the landscape. That is why Montánchez is also known as “the balcony of Extremadura”. Also worth a visit is its peculiar but impressive cemetery, located just below the castle, pressed against the side of the mountain in terraces at different heights.
Montánchez is also known as the capital of Iberian hams. They are of the best quality and are definitely worth tasting, accompanied by a good glass of wine, also produced locally in Montánchez. In the Plaza de España, you will find several cozy terraces where they will serve you the best ham.
See you in Montánchez!
