The valley of the Tagus River as it passes through Talavera has fostered a continuous settlement of diverse cultures since its prehistory. Vetona, Roman, Visigoth, Muslim and Christian. From the pre-Roman era we have found different zoomorphic sculptures of boars that are part of the history of this town in the Iron Age. The Romans give it the name of Caesarobriga, develop agriculture, it is the center of markets and commercial exchanges and coins its own currency. From that time, the pagan spring festival of Las Mondas, which worships Ceres, goddess of agriculture, is celebrated.
With all the weight its history the Talavera of today survives in large part to its good gastronomy. Walking through old and new streets you can make great routes to eat and tapas. Here we recommend some of those unforgettable corners.
