  • View of the Alcazaba fortress in Badajoz by night

This is a city to explore on foot and a place to sample the cuisine of Extremadura in its squares. Its walls, bastions and monuments are a testament to its Arab past and the strategic importance of its location on the banks of the Guadiana river.Read more...

What to see Badajoz is dominated by its Alcazaba fortress, which offers the best views of the city. Inside you can stroll around its attractive gardens and visit the Provincial Archaeological Museum located in the Palace of Los Duques de la Roca. The main area for walking is at the foot of the Alcazaba around the Plaza de San José and Plaza Alta squares. In the Plaza Alta square with its mediaeval origins, note particularly the Casas Mudéjares and the Casas Coloradas buildings. Another point of interest is the Plaza de España. Here you'll see the Town Hall and the cathedral, containing works by Zurbarán, Ribera and Bocanegra. There are a number of stately houses in the area around the Plaza de Cervantes square. If you have time, we suggest visiting another two museums: the Provincial Fine Arts Museum and the Extremaduran and Latin American Museum of Contemporary Art. Gastronomy One of the most typical areas for sampling the cuisine of Extremadura is near the Plaza de España square. We recommend the tomato soup, roast lamb and fried trout. Festivities Two of the most important are Carnival and Easter Week, which have both been declared Festivities of National Tourist Interest.
