Badajoz’s most iconic square
Badajoz’s most iconic square is the Plaza Alta. It’s found next to the Espantaperros Tower, La Galera, and the Alcazaba in the historic part of the city.
This is a large, rectangular square lined by arches which support buildings decorated in traditional Mudéjar motifs in various colors. It’s amazing!
When the square’s bars set up terraces, it becomes an ideal place to sit down and have a drink. The Plaza Alta is connected with the Plaza of San José by the Peso de Colodrazgo Arch. In the Plaza de San José you can find the Puerta del Capitel (the access door to the Alcazaba), the Mudéjar Homes Museum, and the Convent of the Adoratrices.
