Hinojal is in the center of the Cáceres region, half-way between Cáceres city and Plasencia.

This area is known for its incredible bio-diversity, as seen in the oak forests, steppes, wetlands and riverbanks surrounding the town, which has led to the region being classified as a protected zone under the ZEPA (Special Region for the Protection of Birds) designation.

A walk through Hinojal and its surroundings leads to hidden gems such as old wheat mills or many footpaths marked out with dry-stone walls.
