The region of the ‘La Vera’ shire has been occupied since prehistoric times by Phoenicians, Vettones, Celts and Romans. In later times by the Vandals, Swabians, Alans, Visigoths and Arabs, this is shown by its bridges, roads, terraced fields and settlements.

Emperor Charles V choose this corner of the world to spend his last days in the Yuste Monastery.
