Olivenza is situated about 220 miles (354 kilometers) southwest of the national capital Madrid.
Olivenza Castle and the Santa Maria Magdalena are great places to spend a little time while in Olivenza.
You don't have to limit your sightseeing to the points of interest in Olivenza because the whole region is dotted with numerous terrific cultural and natural attractions. You may also wish to check out La Parra, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northwest, and Jerez de los Caballeros 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northwest.
Organise transportation and head to Badajoz, a shopping and transport center for the region, approximately 15 miles (24 kilometers) from Olivenza. This bigger city has a number of attractions, for example Museo de Bellas Artes, Plaza Alta and La Giralda. Plaza de Espana, Puente de Palmas and Badajoz Cathedral are also good to visit.
If you are after things to do inside, make a beeline for Extremadura's excellent history museums. These are good places to learn about the region's rich cultural tapestry and perhaps pick up an unusual gift or two. Extremadura features some wonderful monasteries and other places of worship, ideal places to get a feel for Olivenza's spiritual side.
Get some down time upon the region's waters by going boating or swimming. Touring to new destinations sometimes brings out the inner-daredevil in people. If you are up for a challenge, try parasailing.
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend your last euros on last-minute mementos and say Adiós to the people you've met and the special places you have seen.
