Templar Towns: From Brozas to Alburquerque.
The first stop on this tour we will do in the town named Brozas. We´ll visit the castle palace, site of entrustment of the Order of Alcántara, the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, and of the Holy Martyrs St. Fabian and St. Sebastian. After this tour around Brozas we´ll take the car and go to Herreruela and later to Alburquerque.
The plain of Brozas is known gracefully by some farmers in the area as "The Serengeti". A few miles from Albuquerque we´ll stop to visit the Castle of "Piedra Buena". We´ll return to the car and this time we´ll already arrive to Albuquerque, one of the most beautiful towns in the province of Badajoz. We´ll enjoy the old town and its castle. We will take a skewer in a bar of Albuquerque and back to the car to take us to the starting point of a beautiful hiking trail
in the vicinity of swamp "Peña del Águila" and Alburquerque meadows. We´ll pass near Castle of "Azagala" visiting and admiring beautiful specimens of cork trees like the "Grandfather" . Now we´ll be hungry so we´ll organize a picnic based on good products from Extremadura.
