Tales of a Forgotten Pueblo

Calatañazor, Soria, SpainCalatañazor is one of the least-visited places in the province of Soria, which is itself the least-visited province in all of Spain. Perhaps this hamlet’s most famous visitor was Almanzor, Muslim Spain’s mightiest ruler. He died here in battle, in the year 1002, at a place called the Valley of Blood. Thankfully, it’s quite a bit more peaceful today. Click for larger image. Photo ©Mike Randolph
