Los Santos de Maimona is one of the best linked municipalities in the south of the province of Badajoz, being situated 75 km from Badajoz, 56 km from Mérida and 137 km from Seville.

It boasts a continental Mediterranean climate, with cool, fairly wet winters and hot, dry summers.

The municipality is located in a valley of rolling hills surrounded by mountain ranges that rise up to 660 metres above sea level traversed by the Robledillo Stream. This landscape affords it its unique beauty.
The low-lying countryside is mostly dry and clayey, except for the fertile farmland surrounding the town. Vines, olive trees, almond trees and cereals are grown here. Livestock mainly comprises pigs, sheep and cattle, though there are a number of poultry farms. The area is rich in small game, with an abundance of partridge, rabbit, hare and migratory birds.
