Almoharín is a municipality located in the province of Cáceres, Extremadura, Spain. According to the 2005 census (INE), the municipality has a population of 2050 inhabitants. The village is primarily concerned with agriculture with many inhabitants having fincas of olives and figs. Almoharin is known as the 'Fig Capital of the World' on account of these figs; black and smooth-textured. Both dried figs and chocolate figs are exported worldwide. The village also boasts a cheese-making workshop where you can make your own cheese - after milking the sheep. There is an accompanying exhibition of the history of sheep and cheese-making in the area.
Almoharin has an interesting 16th-century church and a traditional plaza but the Roman bridge, just outside the village, is the oldest architectural remains in the area.
