Located on the banks of the river Duero.
Almazan town owes its name to the Arabs.
It is worth touring its streets at length, especially
the main square, where you will find the palace of the Counts
of Altamira, and some of its churches, such as San Vicente, from
the 12th century; San Miguel, from the mid-12th century, which
combines elements of the Cistercian style in the structure, Lombardic-Catalan
design in the external decoration of the apse and the lantern,
and the Mudejar style in the dome; and San Pedro, from the 18th
century, with a plan of three naves and a beautiful baroque reredos.
Also interesting are the ruins of the convent of La Merced and the palace of the Hurtado de Mendoza family, from the 16th century.
