Description
Peńafiel Castle is situated in the village of Peńafiel in the Valladolid province in Spain. An older fortress once stood here as it was an important point on the line of defence of the river Duero, for both Christians and Moors, during the 9th and 10th centuries. According to legend, when this fortress was finally conquered by Count Sancho Garcia, he planted his lance at the top of the hill and exclaimed "Ésta será la Peńa Fiel de Castilla!" which translates to "This will be Castile's Faithful Rock!", and so it received its present name.
