tourism-logoCáceres will be the Spanish Capital of Gastronomy in 2015. This city in the Extremadura area in western Spain prevailed over the candidacies of Valencia, Lugo, Huesca and Cartagena.

Cáceres now becomes the fourth city to be named as the Spanish Capital of Gastronomy. The first was Logroño, followed by Burgos, then Vitoria-Gasteiz that carries the distinction in 2014. The Extremaduran city will assume this honor starting January 1, 2015.

This prize, awarded by the Spanish Federation of Hotels and Restaurants (FEHR) and the Spanish Federation of Tourism Journalists and Writers (FEPET), is an effort to recognize Spanish gastronomy and cuisine as a key asset in the tourism sector that will strengthen economic activity, for its cultural value and as a way to unify people.

This award looks to promote the culinary offerings of the city selected at both a national and international level and contribute to the distribution and promotion of the agricultural products that originate from this territory.
