Garrovillas de Alconétar

Garrovillas de Alconétar has a very strategic location, extremely close the provincial capital of Cáceres, Plasencia, Monfragüe, Alcántara, Mérida and other essential destinations in Extremadura, whilst conserving the inviting tranquillity of a small town.

Los Barruecos

Situated in Malpartida de Cáceres, half an hour away from Garrovillas de Alconétar, this natural setting offers inviting landscape modelled by huge granite domes, water and humans. In 2017, it appeared as a battle zone in an episode of the TV series "Game of Thrones".

Flowering Almond Tree Show

This event is held during the month of February, when the almond trees are in blossom; it offers the chance to enjoy the impressive scenery around us, as well as to try typical regional products and go walking, horse riding or cycling.

Vostell museum

The town of Los Barruecos is the site of the famous Vostell museum, dedicated to the German artist Wolf Vostell, the driving force behind the Fluxus art movement, discoverer of the decollage technique and father of the 'happening' in Europe.

Corral de Comedias theatre

Inaugurated in 1991, this is one of the few of these traditional theatres left in Spain. Although it is a modern construction, this beautiful, charming theatre stands out for its design in the style of the Spanish Golden Age. It was constructed on the site of the former butchers' shops and sheriffs' houses. It is now used for theatrical performances and public events.

Church of Santa María de la Consolación

Built in the late 15th century, this church is remarkable for its Gothic style. As well as its beautiful architecture and images, here one can find the oldest organ on the Iberian Peninsula, and the third oldest in all of Europe. 

Cáceres old town

The town of Cáceres is little over half an hour away from the Hospedería. The monumental old town is particularly remarkable, containing as it does a great legacy of heritage, especially from the Renaissance era, most notably palaces, stately homes and the co-cathedral.

Convent of Hieronymite nuns

This convent was built on the site of a 16th-century stately home. It is now governed by the Order of Hieronymite Nuns, who are devoted to their religious work and to making sweets and pastries which are held in high esteem throughout the region.

Fiestas of San Mateo and San Roque

The San Mateo livestock fair is held in the month of September. In the past it came to be just as important as the International Livestock Fair in Zafra. During the San Roque fiestas held in the month of August, the square is traditionally transformed into a bullfighting arena. Carts and parapets are set up and the ground is covered with earth to enable this highly traditional festival to take place.

Church of San Pedro Apóstol

Construction of the church, a feat of masonry in Romanesque and Gothic style, dates back to the 15th century. It is comprised of three naves, with a beautiful Renaissance altarpiece in the central one. At the foot of the central nave is the choir, and an 18th-century organ.
