History

During the Peninsular War, El Carpio was the site of the Duke del Parque's Spanish victory over General Kellermann's French troops at the Battle of Carpio (1809). At the southwestern tip of the province of Valladolid, bordering the province of Salamanca, the village, including its church and strategic 10th century fortress, once of great strategic importance, as it separated the kingdoms of Castilla and León, was completely destroyed by the French troops on 25 November 1809.
