History of Zamora

Zamora is a city in the Autonomous Community of Castilla and León lying on a rocky hill on the North bank of the Douro River in Spain. 

During the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries it had three walls protecting the city, and you can still see to this day some of its remains that defended the city. 

It has the most Romanesque Churches in Europe, with a total of 24 Romanesque style Churches dating to the 12th and 13th centuries and has been named a ‘’ Museum of Romanesque Art’’.

In the 12th century during the wars of the Kingdom of León and the Almoravids and Almohads, the city managed to preserve many of its churches and buildings from that time due to its strategic positioning. 

One of its municipalities is an ancient town called Toro, a town known as a wine producing region and a center of Mudéjar Art.
