History Lesson

Sagunto [Sagunt in Catalan] is a town in Eastern Spain  located c. 30 km north of Valencia, close to the Costa del Azahar on the Mediterranean Sea. In 1098, the city was conquered by El Cid but the Muslims recovered it shortly thereafter. The city had been under the Muslim Arab rule for over five hundred years when James I of Aragon conquered it in 1238.
