    The fortress was constructed originally by Inb Narwan of Chiquilli (875). It is located in the highest part of the city, it is conserved barely respecting the configuration of the Arab kings of Badajoz.

    Torre de la Atalaya was erected by Arabs in century XII and, without a doubt, it is most outstanding of the flanking towers of the Arab fortress, constituting one of the symbols most characteristic of Badajoz, in addition to a great architectonic landmark.

    Perhaps is the more representative monument of the city. It consists of a door ready in front of the Bridge of Palms, flanked by two solid crowned cylindrical towers of battlements.

    It's is a good choice when visiting Badajoz, especially if you have tried another local dishes and feel like something different.

    Favorite Dish: I always choose Bacalao (cod). They have six different dishes with it, and all of them are great. If you prefer meat, you might try Cerdo a la alentejana (pork at Alentejo style), a typical dish from a close portuguese region, or the more Spanish "solomillo de cerdo a la plancha", which is really good and much cheaper when comparing it with another restaurants.
    The restaurant also serves a delicious seafood rice for two people (16 euros), but you have to ask it in advance.
    For Saturday lunch, it is convenient to book in advance.
    They also have a daily menu, from Monday to Friday for 7 euros.

    The Fireplace

    In this place they offer their own wine, "Vino de la Casa". It was good red wine, having with meat. There is a fireplace, too, making it possible to grill your food yourself.

    To La Marina

    La Marina was full of well-dressed people already at early evening. I think they were tanking themselves up for night clubs and discos.

    It's better to have a car while in Badajoz, although it is a very small city and you can walk to most places, it is very near Lisbon (2 hours), Madrid (3 1/2 hours), Seville (2 1/2 hours), so you'll have plenty to do...
