Passing by this grand Cathedral that looked more castle-like sitting in the middle of the town with traffic passing all around it...and another chance to stop, admire and take a photo!

Great old church that is still in great shape.I believe that masses are still served there. It was opened in 1276. I did not go in because it was closed at the time, but the Tourist office said that it was a must see,

This Cathedral who has being built into the “Gothic period” and is dating from the 13th century, on the outside, the cathedral was built in the form of a fortress to keep it safe during the continuous wars from which the city has suffered allot. Its construction begun after the conquest of Badajoz by King Alfonso IX in the 13th century. The building is topped by battlements and has a high square tower, with large windows at the second level. It has three entrance doors; the main one is that of San Juan Bautista, topped by the image of the saint. From here we are going to see a church who carries the same name and who is in walking distance, namely the “Church of San Juan Bautista”.

Not really worth the admission

There's many great free churches you can go to in Europe.. This one isn't really worth an admission however it's one of the best examples in Badajoz.

Open for only limited hours, this cathedral evokes ages past with its side chapels and huge choir in the middle of the nave. Hoi poloi worshipers are relegated to the sides.

More fortress than church
maj 2015 • Pary
We thought that this was a very gloomy cathedral and rather disappointing in its own way. The exterior facade is interesting and some of the interior columns and vaulting is good to look at. However, it's just not that nice to look at apart from the choir stalls, which as usual, you can't go near.

The cathedral museum is located separately, but we didn't visit it due to timing constraints.

Historic Church
wrz 2012 • Pary
The Badajoz San Juan Bautista Cathedral is located at Calle de José López Prudencio, 2. The church is dedicated to Saint John the Baptist (San Juan Bautista). The outside of the Cathedral resembles a fortress because this was where the populace took refuge during the continuous wars that involved the city. The construction work was ordered by Bishop Pedro Perez in 1232 and it was only in the 17th century that the church was completed. The building has a high tower with large windows in the top floor and the tower dates from the 15th century. The tower is 41 meters tall and is 11 meters wide. The top of the church has battlements. The main door is that of San Juan Bautista, and on its top there is the image of the saint. The ground plan of the church is a Latin cross, with three naves that are quite austere. The roof has Gothic arches. Since the construction continued into the 17th century, the church has many styles, the Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque. The choir stalls are Renaissance and the main altar has the Churrigueresque style, which was created in 1717. There are a total of 12 chapels and one of them is the Encarnacion or Fonseca Chapel, which has an 18th century altarpiece and an alabaster relief of the Virgin with the Child that was created by the artist Desiderio de Settignano, who was a disciple of Donatello. There is a Renaissance cloister that is adorned with tile and has tombs on the floor. There is a Diocesan Museum that has beautiful silverware and paintings by Luis de Morales, from the 16th century. The Cathedral was declared an Artistic Historical Monument in 1931.
