Almonacid Castle in Toledo (Spain)

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Almonacid Castle is an important province in the Toledo province of central Spain. It is believed to have been built fairly early in the Moorish reign over Spain.  Its name derives from an association with the great knight El Cid, the hero of the Reconquesta during which Christian forces ejected the Muslims from Spain.  The castle was later a place of refuge for Spanish soldiers fighting the French in the Napoleonic Peninsular Wars, a French victory which is inscribed in the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
