Summary

Founded in the late 12th century, Plasencia is a walled city that was built to protect King Alfonso’s colonies to the South. Its impressive walls which boast 70 towers and 8 gates protected a community of Christians, Muslims, and Jews alike. Its safety and accessible trade routes made it the home to nobility which can be seen in its unique Old Quarter.
