Castles in the nightCastles in the nightCastillo de Medinaceli (soria, Spain). It could be any castle perched on the night waiting for some unlikely enemy. I've always loved its imposing simplicity. Allegedlyأبو عامر محمد بن أبي عامر ابن عبد الله المعافري‎ (Abu ʿAmir Muhammad ben Abi ʿAmir al-Maʿafirí or "Almanzor" in Spanish) died here. Once Almanzar was over, the Cordoba's Califate went down pretty fast and the northern kingdoms (mostly Christians, with Muslim affiliates) advanced South quickly.
