Ever since the 14th century, Pimenton is grown in Spain in the Vera region, at the heart of the Sierra de Gredos mountain range. This region has an exceptional temperate and humid microclimate. This Pimenton de la Vera has been granted Protected Designation of Origin, which is a guarantee of excellent quality.
