On this tour, you will have the opportunity to visit one of the best-known ham factories in Spain. From Madrid, you will go on a comfortable bus. There, you will receive a masterclass on Iberian ham, which is exclusive to the peninsula, coming from the Iberian pig. This pig is raised in the wild in wooded pastures, where it can exercise and maintain a special diet (especially acorns and nuts). All these curiosities, the production of the ham itself, its curing time, its classification... are information that you will learn during a guided tour in the factory. But your visit does not end here! You will taste this precious delicacy. You will try a 100% Iberian acorn-fed ham and some Iberian preparations, accompanied by a wine from the Sierra of Salamanca. After that, you will move to Salamanca, a beautiful province of Castilla y León. In the city with the oldest university in Spain, you will be able to visit monuments and buildings declared World Heritage Sites. On a guided tour, you will see highlights such as its different cathedrals, convents, churches and its iconic Plaza Mayor. It is a unique opportunity to learn about its history and culture. In addition, you will have spare time to stroll around the city and try a little more Spanish gastronomy.
