Badajoz Capital City
The history of the region has been one of conquest and reconquest. First between the Arabs and their Christian enemies, then warring warlords of the nascent Portuguese and Spanish States, then the destruction wrought by Napoleon's vandals and finally, the worst of them all, Civil War...
Through all of this, the city has survived and flourished, it's presence almost a miracle of existence amongst so much destruction.
