Photographer's Note

The province of Caceres is one of the most beautiful in Spain. Amazingly intact historical cities, sleepy rural towns and beautiful natural reserves. Sharply cold in the Winter, and very hot at the height of Summer, Caceres is perhaps most stunning in the Spring, when the cherry groves in Jerte Valley are in blossom, the mountain snow is thawing, and the flora and fauna seem to come alive. It is also stunning in the autumn, when vast wooded areas seem ablaze with autumn colours, and the old buildings in Caceres and Trujillo become red and orange under the autumn sun.

Caceres is the capital city of the Region of Extremadura, one of Spain's poorest regions in terms of per capita, but richest in terms of historical heritage, gastronomy, wines and unspoilt nature.
