Stones with legends to tell
Castle of Puente Congosto
Its origin is located between the XII and XIII centuries. It was built for defensive reasons, to control the route which connected Ciudad Rodrigo with Avila.
In 1393, Enrique III granted the manor of the Puente del Congosto to Gil Gonzalez Davila, which rebuilt the castle, which would be Posada Real. The Duke of Alba bought the castle to the Emperor Carlos in 1539, adding to the rectangular tower the large cube gives to the building most uniqueness.
