Villamayor de Monjardín. Castle

A castle built on a rock in Villamayor de Monjardín. It is said to have been built by the Romans, strengthened by the Moors, and conquered by the Christians. Be that as it may, it is known that in the 9th century it was one of the most important fortresses in the territory dominated by the Banu Qasi. After its conquest by King Sancho Garcés in around the year 908 it continued to be one of the main medieval castles of the Crown of Navarra.
