Castillo de Guzmán el Bueno, Tarifa, Cádiz, Spain

Visit the beautiful and iconic The Castle of Tarifa, also known as Castle of Guzmán el Bueno or Castle of the Guzmáns is a castle in the coastal town of Tarifa in Spain. The castle is named after the heroic deeds of Alonso Perez de Guzman , then commandant of the fortress. In 1294 the Muslims laid siege to the castle, having in his possession the son of Don Alonso, urged him to surrender the plaza or his son would die. Don Alonso Perez de Guzman preferred to sacrifice his son rather than surrender the town, pulling even from the octagonal tower, his own knife to kill him. Visit Spain.
