Tomada el 03/01/08
In Islamic period, the city was targeted by several sieges of Carolingian armies and was the centre of some riots against the emirate of Cordoba. During the Xth century, ´Wasca´ became the capital of a large semi-independent kingdom ranging from Lerida to Tudela . Due to incursions by troops of Charlemagne, the Caliphate of Cordoba decided in 874 AD to build  a defensive wall. This is the wall that we can still admire today and which forms part of the tower that we see in the foreground. This tower is one of the defensive towers that were distributed by the perimeter of the wall every 22 meters. At present this is the only remianing tower.

En época islámica, la ciudad fue objetivo de varios asedios de ejércitos carolingios y centro de motines contra el emirato de Córdoba, que la convierten en el Siglo X en capital de un extenso reino semi independiente abarcando desde Tudela hasta Lérida. Debido a las incursiones de tropas de Carlomagno, el califato de Córdoba dió hacia el 874 la orden de amurallar la ciudad al poderoso gobernador de Huesca/"Waska", Amrus-ibn-Umar. Esta es la muralla que podemos todavía admirar en la actualidad y de la cual forma parte la torre que podemos observar en primer plano. Esta torre es unos de los torreones defensivos que se distribuían por el perímetro de la muralla cada 22 metros. En la actualidad sólo se conserva este que vemos aquí.
