We sat enjoying a glass of wine I a very pleasant bar. All of a sudden the music and light show started. A special evening was made even better. A must.

This plaza was easy to find, even without a map (during tourist season), we just followed the trickle of people and whisper of music. We arrived near dusk and it was truly enjoyable. Cafes are available for a treat or something to eat, there was...More

We visited during some Arabian Festival and the square was filled with incense and oils and leather boots and other objects you might relate to the Arabian Nights and that most hippies use. The buildings that in fact surround the square are extremely pretty.

It is a nice place to visit for the architecture, however, it isn't really a centre of city life. I think it is an area that was once run-down and they are trying to bring it back to life

Although there are many lovely places to sit and have a drink or something to eat in Badajoz, this is one of my favourites. It is always full of people, the cafes are good, and if you can get here during carnival or semama santa,...More
