Templar Castle of San Servando

The Castle of San Servando is a medieval castle in Toledo, Spain, near the Tagus River. It was begun as a monastery, occupied first by monks and later by the Knights Templar.

King Alfonso VIII gave the monastery to the Knights Templar, who converted the monastery into a fortress in order to protect the Puente de Alcántara against a possible Muslim attack.

With the dissolution of the Templars in 1312, the fortress lost its importance and was neglected.

Toledo, however, recovered from being captured by the Moors and, once liberated, again became the capital of Spain. To this day, the city is obsessed with both the Knights Templar and with blades. Toledo steel and craftsmen make some of the finest swords on the planet!
