From Furauto we recommend you to plan your itinerary in advance if you have not visited Badajoz before.
The streets in the city center are very narrow, so they require maximum attention. Keep in mind that most of them are one-way streets and maneuvering can be complicated if you make a wrong turn. If your visit coincides with the Feria de San Juan, which is held the last week of June, you may find streets cut off and more traffic and pedestrians than usual.
Parking your rental car in Badajoz is quite tedious. There are few spaces in the center and drivers have to drive around and around until they get a lucky break.

However, from Furauto we recommend that you leave the hassle behind and park your vehicle in one of the parking lots that we show you in the following link.
