Extremadura has a remarkable number of beautiful orchids, which flower at various times from early March to the end of May. Spring is the high season for these lovely flowers, with many types of insects like bees and butterfies now drawn to the nectar of the flower. Among all species, orchids stand out as being the most complex and the most fascinating. Their forms and colours have been modified to attract specific species.
The most extraordinary and beautiful are a group known as the bee orchids, which bloom in March and early April in Extremadura.
