Extremadura Map - SPAIN
Last weekend I went to Mérida for romantic Valentine's Day getaway with my wife. Mérida is a very beautiful city with amazing Roman Ruins (a UNESCO WHS from where I already have a card) and a nige nightlife. I bought and sent to myself this Mapcard of the region of Extremadura (Mérida is the capital) for my collection. This postcard took 2 days to arrive!
Extremadura is an autonomous community of western Spain whose capital city is Mérida. Its component provinces are Cáceres and Badajoz. It is bordered by Portugal to the west. To the north it borders Castile and León (provinces of Salamanca and Ávila); to the south, it borders Andalusia (provinces of Huelva, Seville, and Córdoba); and to the east, it borders Castile–La Mancha (provinces of Toledo and Ciudad Real). Its official language is Spanish. It is an important area for wildlife, particularly with the major reserve at Monfragüe, which was designated a National Park in 2007, and the project of the International Tagus River Natural Park (Terreno Natural Río Tajo Internacional).
