Title: El Hospital Militar de Badajoz. Siglo XIX
Author: Cruz Villalón, María
Abstract: El presente artículo puede servir de documento de un tipo de arquitectura que fue propio de la fisonomía de un núcleo urbano, y en este caso, pese a su sobriedad funcional, constituye además una noble construcción dentro del género de la arquitectura militar. En la parte alta de la alcazaba de Badajoz, se sitúa el edificio del Hospital Militar, que hasta 1991 ha mantenido alguna función, siendo la última pertenencia del ejército en aquel recinto, que tan marcada significación militar tuvo a lo largo de la historia. Esta vasta fábrica, que se conserva en buen estado, es por otra parte, uno de los pocos edificios militares que han pervivido en Badajoz, ciudad esencialmente militar, donde el derribo sistemático practicado en el siglo XX, ha tenido como consecuencia la pérdida de su identidad histórica. No se trataba realmente de un hospital, ni siquiera una fábrica homogénea, sino una amalgama de construcciones sucesivas, que se habían ido adicionando en el tiempo, desde la reconquista de la ciudad. Anteriormente fue Almacén Real, residencia de los obispos de Badajoz y, finalmente, tras un incendio, se aprovecharía como hospital militar.This paper can serve as a document of a type of architecture that was typical of the physiognomy of an urban core, and in this case, despite its functional sobriety, it is also a noble construction within the genre of military architecture. The Military Hospital is located in the upper part of the citadel of Badajoz, which has maintained some function until 1991, being the last belonging of the Army in that area, which had such a marked military significance throughout history. This vast area, which is preserved in good condition, is on the other hand, one of the few military buildings that have survived in Badajoz, an essentially military town, where the systematic demolition practiced in the 20th century, has resulted in the loss of its historical identity. It was not really a hospital, not even a homogenous building, but an amalgam of successive constructions, which had been added in time, since the reconquest of the city. Previously it was Real Warehouse, residence of the bishops of Badajoz and, finally, after a fire, it would be used as a military hospital.
