Comment: Carrión de los Condes was the home of Diego and Fernán González, brothers in law of El Cid.

Carrion occupied a a strategic position in this volatile area and the population reached as high as 10,000 but it is now a smallish town retaining it’s medieval atmosphere around the central square. Carrion is the capital of the tierra de campos area.
