A legend town
Siurana and its castle were the last stronghold of the reconquest in Catalonia , conquered in 1153, after the fall of Lleida and Tortosa.
Once you see the precipice that surrounds it, you can understand why it was not conquered for three centuries, why four-numbered horses were necessary, and why the end was so tragic.
The legend tells that “Abdelazia, the Moorish queen, before being subjected to the Christians, preferred to fall off a cliff with her horse. And the animal, in its useless resistance, left the imprint of its horseshoe marked on the rock forever”. And with that leap the last Saracen redoubt in Catalonia disappeared.
In Siurana, its Romanesque church , dedicated to Santa Maria, and built between the 12th and 13th centuries, also stands out. Both the majestic cover and its sober and simple interior are worth a visit.
