Cathedral of Badajoz
The Cathedral of Badajoz is calle Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and it was built between 1230 and 1276 on an ancient mosque and Mozarabic Monument Historic-Artistic Site in 1931.
The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist was built as a fortress due to the constant wars that swept the city. It has crenellated walls and a tower 11 meters wide by 41 meters high. Highlighted in its facade are the coats of arms of several bishops of the diocese and several noble families of the city.
Its appearance contrasts with the treasures that are stored in its interior. From the railings of the seventeenth century, the monumental central lamp of 102 arms and 3750 kilos, the choir stalls of the sixteenth century or the collection of sixteenth-century flamenco tapestries, are all on display in the Sacristy.
