The Extremadura province of Badajoz provides Spain with yet another gem and helps explain why the country is such a popular tourist destination. Near the border of Portugal, the province contains UNESCO World Heritage archaeological sites, postcard-perfect village scenery and peerless culture. The beautiful capital city of the same name sits on the Guadiana river and is a frequent stop on the Madrid-Lisbon rail line.
With just under 150,000 people, Badajoz the city is small enough to navigate on foot. Indeed, the pedestrian route is the ideal way to enjoy the provincial capital, with landmarks like a 13th century cathedral, Moorish castle and excellent Museum of Fine Arts. Other notable points of interest in Badajoz province include the UNESCO Archaeological Ensemble of Mérida, Zafra Alcazar and Castillo de los Templarios in beautiful Jerez de los Caballeros. The border town of Olivenza is also worth a visit, with a prominent castle, 16th century bridge and late Gothic Santa Maria Madalena Church.
