Photographer's Note

Peņafiel Castle is located in Peņafiel, Valladolid Province, Spain. The castle is more than 150 metres (490 ft) long and encloses an area about 10 m (33 ft) wide. Standing in the middle is a 20 m (66 ft) high three storey keep.
Fernan Gonzalez began construction on the Peņafiel site in 947, as a frontier outpost in defense against the Arabs. A castle was built in 1013 by Sancho Garcia to protect the land.
