Ancient holm oaks and noble pig breeds: The ham route of Badajoz
33 rewarding stops in 130 kilometres: the Iberian Ham Route in Badajoz is rich in places of interest and places to visit. Every four kilometres, the traveller encounters a ham museum, a drying room or a natural wonder such as the 800-year-old holm oak La Terrona near Montánchez.
The road leads through seemingly endless meadows where the noble Cerdo Ibérico pig breeds graze under oak and cork trees. But there are also impressive cultural monuments, such as the Roman theatre of Mérida or the cathedral San Juan of Badajoz.
