The outrage at Corpes

Location:

A natural forest area near the hermitage of La Virgen de la Concepción del Monte, 6 km from Castillejo de Robledo along rural paths of easy access.. Castillejo de Robledo

Fans of the Cidian legend can visit the remains of the rock carved hermitage of La Concepción del Monte, located under a large rock, at the beginning of a narrow and closed valley. Nearby there is a fountain where traditionally it is said the husbands of el Cid´s daughters whipped and offended their wives. This is a very important episode of the Song of el Cid: after marrying the daughters of el Cid in Valencia,  the Carrión's dauphin brothers returned to León with their wives, far from the entourage that accompanied them, they mocked their wives, undressing, whipping and finalley abandoned them. Fortunately for el Cid's daughters, his cousin Félez Muñoz retraced his steps and there he found them, saving them from certain death.

By car, final stretch is quite complicated, with deep ruts, so it is only recommended for all-terrain and 4x4 vehicles.
