Are you a cheese lover? Do you appreciate the art of producing creamy, gooey cheese and slathering it all over your food? If you do, then you might want to travel to some of the best cheese-producing places in the world.

These places take the art of producing cheese very seriously, no matter what kind. Here are some of the places you should visit if you're a certified cheese aficionado:

Gruyères, Switzerland. You probably have heard of Gruyère cheese-- most people use it for baking and making delicious fondues. This town in Switzerland is where this type of cheese originated, where people have been making it for centuries. Because of the versatility of Gruyère cheese (depending on its age), you can make all sorts of delicious dishes with it. And in this quaint Swiss town of Gruyères, they have perfected its art.

Wisconsin, USA. Wisconsin is not just a good place for nature traveling; they also produce some of the best cheeses in the world such as Gouda, Havarti, Blue Cheese, and Gorgonzola. There are actually tons of cheese factories scattered all over the state, so why not walk in one of them and see for yourself the step-by-step process of making excellent cheese? If you're lucky, they might give you a free taste!

La Mancha, Spain. This place is not just the birthplace of Don Quixote, it's also the hometown of Manchego cheese. It's the most famous Spanish cheese, and all over the world people take delight in its rich, buttery goodness that's best paired with Serrano ham and La Mancha's array of local red wines. You can also try and visit its manufacturing process at Artequeso (Finca La Prudenciana), an agricultural farm in Tembleque.

Normandy, France. If you really love cheese then you might want to live in Normandy. Their selection of French cheeses will delight your cheese-loving heart, especially in the town of Camembert-where the highly famous Camembert cheese is made. In the village cheese-related attractions are waiting for you as well, such as the Cheese Museum, the Beamoncel - the manor house of Marie Harel, Héronnière Farm - Fromagerie Durand, and the President Farm.
