In the first decades of the 11th century, the forces of Spanish Christendom began to gather strength, pushing Muslim armies and communities southward. This program examines those initial steps toward the reconquest of the peninsula and their geographical and architectural manifestation in Spain's modern landscape. Students will learn about the role of the Druero River as a natural battlefront, and as a strategic location for the Castle of Gormaz, one of Western Europe's oldest standing citadels. The reign of King Al-Mutadid of Seville, the celebrated interaction between Alfonso VI and El Cid, and many other subjects are featured.
