Sierra de Gata and Coria

Sierra de Gata

The Sierra de Gata is one of the regions of Extremadura, in the extreme northwest of the province of Cáceres. It limits the north with the province of Salamanca, the west with Portugal (Natural Reserve of the Serra da Malcata) and the east with the districts of Las Hurdes, the Lands of Granadilla and Las Vegas del Alagón and to the south, with the region from the Land of Alcántara. It takes its name from the mountains of the Sierra de Gata.

Sierra de Gata is one of those corners full of unique aspects that enrich those who visit it. Its situation on the border with Portugal and with the province of Salamanca only increases its cultural heritage; the mixture of these influences make of all the towns of Sierra de Gata places with magic that linger in the memory.
