Valencia – The Capture of the City

WithDamian Smith, Helena Buffery

[206] While we were in Huesca, we went through our land towards Sarinyena, for we had decided to take the castle which the Saracens called Enesa and the Christians Puig de Cebolla, and which now has the name Puig de Santa Maria. We considered which noble of our land we could leave there when we had taken it. As we considered that men cannot gain in honour or worth without good works, we decided we had to entrust a place such as that, once it was taken, to somebody who loved us greatly and in whom we trusted.
