The cultivation of peppers to make paprika and cayenne was introduced in La Vera in the 16th century by the Hieronymite monks of the Monastery of Yuste.

Since then it has spread across the whole valley and become one of the most quintessential products of the region.

In La Vera the pepper crops enjoy an exceptional microclimate for their natural development thanks to the protection of the Sierra de Gredos, with mild temperatures in winter and dry summers. There is also plenty of water due to the River Tiétar and the many water courses flowing through the ravines.

The peppers grown here are of the species “Capsicum annum” and the sub-species cerasiforme and longum, which produce three kinds of paprika: Sweet, Bittersweet and Hot.
