Thursday 20th April
This morning we wandered and meandered around the narrow streets of the old city of Badajoz. Breakfast toast and coffee in a quirky little street café was followed by a walk to the citadel ~ the alcazaba. Built during the Islamic period, much still remains today. The views over the city, to the many terracotta rooftops and river beyond are terrific.
The Plaza Alta is spectacular, with it’s black, white and red tiled buildings and many arches surrounding the square, it is a great place to soak up the history of the area.
I’m sure you would have been imersed in the magical days of old and the tales of battles and conquering heroes.
Miss you so much
Darling Angel son.
