CThe tower of Fernán González is located in Covarrubias, in the province of Burgos. It is considered the first Castilian construction, it is the living testimony of the Count's era, built in the first half of the 10th century, which the Cid Campeador probably saw on his marches through Castile. In it, a tragic legend is located around a Castilian infanta called Doña Urraca and its walls house a magnificent exhibition of medieval siege weapons, which this phenomenal defensive construction knew how to resist. It also has a souvenir shop, thematic bookstore and handicrafts.
