May 2014

Located in the center of the country, this small Spanish town is notable for having complete and prominent medieval town walls encircling the town.  Conquered by Romans, Visigoths and Arabs before being re-conquered by Raymond of Burgundy who, starting in 1088, had the walls constructed.  Nikon D7000 w/18-200mm, processing with Photomatix Pro and Aperture.
