Love the fields of lilac; the Wine cellar, and the fabulous image of the castle.

El Campillo is a really small village (40 inhabitants) 20 kilómetros away from Zamora, and there is a small church, San Pedro de la Nave. Small but important, because it's a visigothic building of the 7th century.

Specially beautiful are several capitals.

In one of them there is Daniel with the lions. The visigothics were a barbarian people, but the most civilized of all of them. As a nomadic people until they arrived to the Iberian peninsule, the objects they could carry with them were very important. So they copied in the capitals pieces of clothes from Persia, pendants from the Bizantine empire, etc.

Tordesillas is a small 9.000 inhabitants city in Valladolid.



One of the many cities in the Duero river.

In the entry, just crossing the medieval bridge, a monument to the "toro de la Vega", the reason that every spanish person knows Tordesillas... Is a medieval tournament where the bull goes out from the village and is prosecuted by people with spears until they killed it...
Most people in Tordesillas support this activity, but it's very controversial and criticized in all Spain.

I'm putting just one pic of the "caballistas", because it's not very nice watching someone killing a bull with a spear...

Las casas del Tratado (the houses of the Treaty). The left one, 15th century, and the right, 17th century. Here the Tordesillas treaty was signed between Spain and Portugal in 1494, dividing the new discovered lands: they divided up América.

This is the convent.

In the 14th century there were several mudéjar palaces built in 1311-1363, some romos were preserved and some were modified along the centuries as it was converted into a convent. It was very common to donate the palace when the owned died to be a convent, a way to buy the heaven.

The sober facade, with the old mudéjar palace gate. It was a model copied later in Sevilla, in the Reales Alcázares that appear in Game of Thrones.

Pictures are forbidden inside the convent... I just made 2, and I'll post some of the few pics of Tordesillas convent in the internet.
Behind the mudéjar facade there is the old palace hall, with polilobulated arcs and plasterworks with haunging scenes.In the late 14th century as it was a convent, they added religious paintings.





The next is the arab courtyard, a tiny mudéjar courtyard from the palace.

The next is the Gold chapel, the old palace chapel, with mudéjar arcs and a dome.

The old big mudéjar courtyard was demolished in the 16th and 17th century, and they replaced it so the actual one is "herreriano".



The church, with a mudéjar roof made in 1450.
