Car Hire Badajoz

Badajoz Airport Guide

Badajoz, inland gets terribly hot in the summer and so the best times to visit are in spring when the countryside is awash with flowers and in autumn when the air is full of the scent of ripening grapes. The key attraction of Badajoz is its defensive architecture; from the imposing city walls to the refurbished alcazaba, it exudes confidence in its security. If you are interested in ecclesiastical buildings you may initially be disappointed by the cathedral which is also heavily fortified rather than delicate. The city’s alcazaba is also very impressive and from the top of the fortress you’ll get a great view out over the region known as Extremadura.


Badajoz Airport Directions

The airport is 13 km east of Badajoz. Once you have collected your hire car it’s a short trip along the fast E90 before joining the city ring road, the A5 and then dropping into the city along the EX107.


Badajoz Airport Parking

Car parking at Badajoz Airport is only a minute away from the terminal. It’s not big but then the airport isn’t especially busy. 222 spaces await you, divided into a small short term area and a bigger long term park. There are no shuttles from the car park as it’s a very short walk, even with luggage!


Badajoz Airport Flight Information

Badajoz Airport is an easy way to get into Badajoz but is only a domestic airport so you’ll have to make a connection in Barcelona, Madrid or Malaga from the UK. To get to the region by direct flight you’ll need to fly to Seville’s San Pablo airport but then make a 120 mile drive to Badajoz!

Badajoz Info

Badajoz is a stunning example of a fortified city and has developed as such since the 11th century. Once an autonomous Moorish kingdom, it changed hands after several bloody sieges over the centuries. The city was important as it controlled the trade route between Portugal and the rest of Europe and held sway over the Extremadura region. Even today it’s possible to get an idea of how strong the city was and how determined it was to remain independent. There’s little grace and finery about the fortifications, just solid, dependable and high walls.

Badajoz Trivia:
  • Badajoz is a fortified city and the remains of the city walls are prominent in many parts of the city today.
  • There are also remains of a Moorish fortress in the centre of the town, one of the furthest north in Spain
  • The siege and subsequent capture of Badajoz in 1812 was a key event in Wellington’s Iberian campaign
  • The event is marked on the 6th April each year at the castle and also at Nottingham Castle, the home of the regiment that took Badajoz
