Rate this:
As the 1400s dawned and progressed, the last remnants of military resistance to the Christian reconquista faded from Spain-but the legacy of Islamic culture was ensured. This program explores that climactic stage in medieval Spanish history. Navigating what can still be seen of the urban landscape of the time, the program illuminates the lives of Muslim leader Ibn Zamrak, Castilian constable Alvaro de Luna, and the latter's role in the wider drama propelled by Queen Isabella of Portugal and King John of Aragon. Viewers will discover the importance of Olmedo, Calatayud, the village of Escalona, and Granada-the final stand of Muslim military might in Spain.
