Armband for SD Ponferradina VS SD Huesca
The next captain’s armband for Tuesday’s LaLiga SmartBank game with SD Ponferradina at El Toralín continues to help building bridges among the provinces in the country, by identifying areas of common ground between the two corresponding territories.
In this armband, we can see both Templar Castles of Ponferrada and Monzón. On the one hand, the first one has been an Asset of Cultural Interest (Bien de Interés Cultural) and a National Historic-Artistic Monument since 1924, and finds its origin in the early Iron Age. Today, besides being a symbol of the city, it’s a participatory space for knowledge and culture. On the other hand, the Templar Castle of Monzón, located on a tertiary rock, used to be home of the main Templar town of the Crown of Aragon.
The ensemble has been represented as a single common wall with SD Huesca’s badge and two medieval flags in the centre. On the right side, we can find the tower of Monzón Castle and on the left, there is the tower of Ponferrada Castle. Both of them include some abstract details of their architectural elements.
Templar Castle of Ponferrada
The Templar Castle of Ponferrada has prehistoric origins related to a settlement that can be placed in the early Iron Age. These 8,000-square-metre vestiges form the historic remains of this astonishing Castle located in a privileged environment. Today, it is a living space, open to knowledge and culture, and has become truly symbolic for Ponferrada.
Templar Castle of Monzón
The templar Castle of Monzón, a National Monument located on a very big tertiary rock, is a unique fortress that would live a continued military history for 10 centuries. It has an Arab tower, a Romanesque chapel and outbuildings, as well as underground galleries. It is a representative fortress in Monzón and Aragon, as it proved to be very important for the history of the Kingdom.
