Forth Transnational Meeting in Badajoz

› It is situated close to the Portuguese border, on the left bank of the river Guadiana.

› Badajoz is the capital of the Province of Badajoz in the autonomous community of Extremadura, Spain.


Conquered by the Moors in the 8th century, Badajoz became a Moorish kingdom, the Taifa of Badajoz. After the reconquista, the area was disputed between Spain and Portugal for several centuries with alternating control resulting in several wars including the Spanish War of Succession (1705), the Peninsular War (1808–1811), the Storming of Badajoz (1812), and the Spanish Civil War (1936). Spanish history is largely reflected in the town.


› The city formerly hosted CD Badajoz, which dissolved in 2012 after finishing the season in Segunda División B Group 1. › Now, the city's main association football club is CD Badajoz 1905, a new club formed in 2012 by disappeared CD Badajoz supporters which is currently playing in the Regional Preferente in Extremadura, the fifth level of competition of the Spanish league football, after promotion in the 2012–13 season in the playoffs.


› The club was dissolved in summer 2013.

› The club competed in the Liga EBA, and calls Polideportivo La Granadilla its home arena.

› Badajoz's basketball club is AB Pacense, formed in 2005 from the remnants of Badajoz's dissolved basketball clubs, including CajaBadajoz, Círculo Badajoz, and Habitacle.


› The course is described as challenging, in part due to the 14 lacustrine features and abundance of trees on the course.

› The course is described as "gentle and undulating", set on the banks of the Guadiana River.

› Badajoz plays host to two golf courses. One, the Don Tello Golf Course, (Spanish: Club de Golf de Mérida Don Tello), is a 9-hole course constructed in 1994.


› The second, the Guadiana Golf Course, (Spanish: Golf del Guadiana), is an 18-hole construct built in 1992.
