Topography

Although in many districts there are low ranges of hills, the surface is more often a desolate and monotonous plain, flat or slightly undulating. Its one large river is the Guadianamarker, which traverses the north of the province from east to west, fed by many tributaries; but it is only at certain seasons that the river-beds fill with any considerable volume of water, and the Guadiana may frequently be forded without difficulty. The climate shows great extremes of heat in summer and of cold in winter, when fierce north and north-west winds blow across the plains.

After Badajozmarker, the capital, the principal towns are Almendralejomarker, Azuagamarker, Don Benito, Jerez de los Caballeros, Méridamarker and Villanueva de la Serena).
