Fantastic!

Only one thing: Xàtiva is in València, not in Alicante.

Olvidarme? No me olvidé, simplemente que no puedo poner todos los castillos de España en un hilo con dos páginas... A penas ha comenzado...

Let's resume the thread...

Castillo de Gormaz (Soria)

image hosted on flickr

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2586/...7bc86669_o.jpg

Some info about Gormaz Castle from Wikipedia:

The castle is located 13 km south-east of El Burgo de Osma, at Gormaz, in the province of Soria, in the autonomous community of Castile-Leon, Spain. It is situated north of the Duero river, placed on a hill that rises 100 m above the river level.

The castle is more than 390 metres long, has 28 towers (originally at least 31), a main gate with a monumental horseshoe arch with remains of painted red and white voussoirs, two posterns, one of which with a small horseshoe arch, three mihrabs corresponding to a "musalla" or open air collective oratory, use of "spoliae" of the Roman period, and the remains of a water pool near the monumental gate mentioned before. It was repaired in the 14th century, from which time date the remains of two gates on the southern side.

It was built shortly after 756 A.D. by Emir Abd ar-Rahman I of Córdoba, as part of a state ("dawla") policy to control rich landowners and peasants, as well as to try to govern and protect the Central Marches in the Douro Valley against the Christians to the North."
