Sitting on the banks of the river Duero, the town of Almazán owes its name to the Arabs. It has remains of a wall, two entrance gates –Mercado and Herreros- and several churches. It is worth touring its streets at length, especially the main square, where you will find the palace of the Counts of Altamira, and some of its churches, such as San Vicente, from the 12th century; San Miguel, from the mid-12th century, declared to be a National Monument, which combines elements of the Cistercian style in the structure, Lombardic-Catalan design in the external decoration of the apse and the lantern, and the Mudejar style in the dome; and San Pedro, a religious temple from the 18th century, with a plan of three naves and a beautiful baroque reredos. Also interesting are the ruins of the convent of La Merced and the palace of the Hurtado de Mendoza family, from the 16th century.
