Alcocer, Badajoz


The balcony of Extremadura

Perhaps the most spectacular views I have ever seen in Spain, they progress endlessly onwards past the village of Alcocer from the vantage point of the ruined castle that was once a stronghold of the Knights Templar, an organisation that was considered so powerful in its time that the Pope ordered its complete destruction. The castle still sits on the balcony of Extremadura watching endlessly across the endless plains, but the ruins speak volumes of the events that happened here over five hundred years ago.

Sitting in the lee of the castle is the small village of Alcocer, a town that has survived on agriculture and the odd passing tourist. From here, access to the castle is easy and the photo-opportunities are limitless.
