Peter the Cruel’s troops also destroyed the wall of Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia, Spain)

Palencia / The wall of Aguilar de Campoo, with abundant remains from the 14th century although at least one gate is documented at the end of the 12th century, will continue its restoration not only in the part that collapsed last January, but in all the sections susceptible to intervention.

This restoration will require a preliminary study announced on Tuesday by the Vice-Minister of Culture, Raúl Fernández, during a visit with the Mayoress of Aguilar de Campoo, María José Ortega, to the section located in the Paseo de la Barbacana, affected by collapses last January due to a storm.

The study, which will be completed in 2021, will pay special attention to the reconstruction needs of the wall affected by the storm Filomena, but will also evaluate the state of conservation of the rest of the fence to find out what causes could jeopardise its stability.

The planned budget for this is 12,000 euros, sources from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism have informed through an informative note.

The wall of Aguilar de Campoo could already exist in 1191, according to a document from the Santa María la Real monastery that refers to one of the access gates to this municipality to which King Alfonso X El Sabio granted a Royal Charter in 1255.

The wall of Aguilar de Campoo may have already existed in 1191, according to a document from the monastery of Santa María la Real which refers to one of the access gates to this municipality to which King Alfonso X the Wise granted Royal Charter in 1255.

Part of it stretches over the Pisuerga River and currently preserves three towers and abundant remains from the 14th century rebuilt after the destruction caused, in the middle of that century, by Peter the Cruel’s troops. (13 April 2021, EFE/PracticaEspañol)
