’Castle of Montealegre.’
The lack of windows and ornamentation gives the early 14th century Castle of Montealegre an austere appearance. As a multifaceted crystal it sits on the barren plain of Valladolid province. The first castle on this location was built in the 12th century. It formed part of a Castilian defensive line against the Kingdom of León. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
