Badajoz – La Giraldilla

Badajoz lies on a low range of hills crowned by a ruined Moorish castle and overlooks the Guadiana river. 

The city is heavily fortified – a bastioned wall with a moat protects the city as does the fort of San Cristobal. The river separates the castle hill and the fort making the city even more impregnable. 
Even the Cathedral resembles a fortress with its massive walls. A magnificent granite bridge is used to cross the river. some photos of Badajoz…
