Artist's Description

The name Aliaga comes from the Arabic word Alulgha (twisted valley) and during the Middle Ages it formed part of the eastern border of the Taifa of Albarracín. Alfonso I the Battler was the first to reconquer it from the Moors but when he died the Moors recaptured the town and was not to be reconquered until 1163 by Alfonso I. Aliaga was then handed over to orden militar de los Hospitalarios. Aliaga became an important Carlist town and the Arab castle was refortified 1838.
Castillo de Aliaga (XII c.), was once a great 4000 m2 fortress of which there are few remains; of three precincts, only the middle battlement has survived, as well as eight round towers and a watchtower, which are shown in this photograph.
