The Muslim Castle at Gormaz (Castillo de Gormaz) is the oldest and largest citadel in Western Europe of its time. It was built shortly after 756 A.D. by Emir Abd ar-Rahman I of Córdoba, as part of State ("dawla") policy to control rich landowners and peasants, as well as to try to govern and protect the Central Marches in the Douro Valley against the Christians to the North.
