Count sancho garcia defeated the arabs

The first evidence of its construction dates back to the beginning of the 10th century and the first news mentioning it are from the beginning of the 11th century when the Count Sancho Garcia defeated the Arabs and declared, "from now on, this will be the most faithful place in Castilla," which is where the city's name originated from (peñafiel = faithful group).

The castle is built in a boat-like shape which shape was adapted to fit the narrow hill on which it sits. The Provincial Wine Museum is currently locked in the castle.

The different rooms show the various processes used to make wine, as well as the different denominations found in Valladolid: Ribera del Duero, Cigales and Rueda.

A castle shaped like a boat

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.
