Fascinating to follow the process of making Jamon Iberico from start to finish. I enjoyed learning about the cultural significance and all that is involved. Truly a treat for Jamon lovers!

Sounds surreal, amuseum devoted to ham, but the beautiful dehesa surrounding the town produces some of the best jamon in Spain, and the oaks forests that feed the free range iberico pigs are a unique ecosystem which this museum explains in fascinating detail.
