For this visit we have put our car into the underground garage called “Parking Plaza Santa María” who you can find into the “Calle Montesinos, 23”. From this location it is very easy to visit the historic centre. When you leave the car-park you will come out into the “Calle San Juan”, and so you are already on the first location to visit, the “Iglesia de la Concepcepción” which seems to be the most emblematic churches in the historic centre of the city of Badajoz. The church has been built in the year 1790 and this in the late Baroque style. When you by leaving the car-park, turn to your left and going uphill you will arrive on top of the street at the “Jardins de la Galera”.

The Church of La Concepcion is located at Calle San Juan, 28. The church occupies the old Convent of San Gabriel of the Franciscan Order of Barefoot Monks. This was founded by San Pedro de Alcantara in 1520. In the 16th century Don Gome Hernandez de Solis and his wife Catalina de Silva funded the present church, asking that their sepulchers be placed there. The current appearance of the church dates from 1768 and is attributed to one of the best Spanish architects of the 18th century, Ventura Rodriguez. That is a reason for the beauty of this magnificent building that represents an authentic landmark in this style among the monuments of the city. Ventura Rodriguez collaborated with the Italians Juvara and Sachetti in the construction of the Royal Palace of Madrid. The style is late Baroque. It has a big central cupola that stands out and is visible from any point of the city. The exterior plan is rectangular. The façade on Calle San Juan has seven pilasters and has the coats of arms of the Franciscan order framed by little stones. Above them there are two niches and between them the magnificent coat of arms of Manuel Godoy. The floor plan is ellipsoidal and this is topped by a vault with a lantern that illuminates the interior. The church has images of the brotherhood called Cofradía de Jesus de la Humildad e Virgen de los Dolores that date from the 17th century.
