The Battle of Albesa was a follow-up to the Battle of Torà that took place 25 February 1003 at Albesa, near Balaguer, between the united Christian forces of Catalonia and the Islamic forces of the Caliphate of Córdoba. It was one of the border skirmishes associated with the interminable razzias of the Reconquista, described as “a simple encounter between local forces” and “a local action without overarching importance”, though both these views are called into question by the assemblage of important Catalan leaders at the battle and the Muslim reprisal which followed.
