What is iberico?

The term 'iberico' is frequently used by itself to refer to 'Jamon Ibérico'.

Jamon Ibérico directly translates to 'Iberian ham'.

'Iberian' refers to the Iberian Peninsula, which is the peninsula that Spain and Portugal are located on.

While the term is most frequently used to refer to this type of sausage, it can be used to refer to items that come from the Iberian Peninsula.

What does cerrado mean?

Cerrado is the Spanish (masculine) word for 'closed'.

For example: 'La puerta está cerrada' means 'The door is closed.'

If 'cerrado' is on a sign with no other words, or in a very large print, it is most likely a sign stating that a business is closed.

Cerrado can also refer to a Brazilian savannah that spans across five states (Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul, Mato Grosso, Tocantins and Minas Gerais). The Cerrado makes up 21% of the country's land area.
