The Battle for l’Al-Andalus
The name of this station reminds us of the important battle that took place on July 16, 1212 on the plateau of Navas de Tolosa, Jaen. In this battle, a coalition formed by Alphonse the Eigth of Castille, Pere the Second of Catalunya-Aragó, Sanς V the Sixth of Navarre and Alfons the Second of Portugal faced off the fourth Almohad Khalifa Muhamed al-Nasir.The victory allowed the Christian army to reach the heart of Al-Andalus and thus the Reconquista began.
