“The Fortress”: Ledesma Castle

Know as the Fortress, the castle was built in the south-west of the town, far from the river, in order to defend the areas which were exposed by means of the orography.

Its origins date back to the times of Fernando II de Leon (12th century), although it got its definite shape by means of the Count of Ledesma, Don Beltran de la Cueva, who gives his coat of arms to the town in the 15th century, as it can be seen on the north door of the building.
