Description

The great Christian victory (1212) of Navas de Tolosa prepared the way for the downfall of the Muslims. Cˇrdoba fell to Ferdinand III of Castile in 1236. The wars went on, and one by one the Moorish strongholds fell, until only Granada remained in their hands. Mßlaga was taken (1487) after a long siege by the forces of Ferdinand and Isabella, and in 1492 Granada was recovered.
