Peñafiel Castle
(32)
I like castles and was eager to see this one specifically due to the fact that it's shaped like a boat. Unfortunately, I was only able to see it from the outside because it was a Monday, and all the museums are closed on Mondays.

The Room Tribute, Peñafiel Castle
We are in a town of Valladolid, called Penafiel. One of the greatest things about this town is its castle. There is evidence that the castle dates dates back to the 10th Century. In the photo that I have included, you can see the room of Homage which, as its name suggests, is located within the keep. It is a very special room, and I'm sure you will like it. It contains many costumes, which at that time were in fashion. There are also two old but well preserved armor guarding the arms of Castile and Leon. Imagine these costumes on their protagonists: Alfonso X the Wise, D. Juan Manuel, Felipe V, Philip IV, Ferdinand II, the Holy One, the Prince of Viana, Doña Urraca ... Characters linked to the history of the castle and town. And inside the room up a narrow staircase, you reach the top of the tower.
