MEDIEVAL CASTLES

There was important strong Arabic square and the capital of the kingdom of the Aftásidas, being enlarged in the later years by the almohades, up to his conquest for Alfonso IX of León.It was a center of the frontier disputes of the kingdoms peninsualres with Portugal, and later, preferential scene of the Wars of Restoration of Portugal and of Spanish Succession, which during dozens of years they destroyed the population on the occasion of the numerous sieges suffered by the square. During the War of the Independence it suffered four hard sieges, first for Napoleon's ejercitop and later of the troops alidas of Great Britain, Portugal and Spain.
