These two men, Cortes and Pizarro, will meet only once, maybe twice, during the activity. Both possessed extraordinary courage. Both were adventurers, soldiers of fortune, people born to lead in an era of medieval chivalry, when the only decent thing for a gentleman, indeed its only raison d'etre , there was a war. Moreover, their homeland was Extremadura, and it is in this harsh mountain terrain they scored their best people. If you will be traveling on a plateau Extremadura today, you will find it little changed. Stone Oak is still obscure large areas of the country of its dark green foliage; his huge acorns still serve as food for pigs, horses and cattle, and even provide a minimally adequate diet for a person; settlements on the hills still represent only a scattering of huts scattered on the bare rocky spurs, and the village - mostly one-story houses lining the cobbled streets of cobblestone, descending to the central gutter. The tops of the hills crowned an old castle or a great strongholds such as Belalcazar. In Medellin, the city under the walls of the huge castle, still preserved traces of the house of the Cortes, is also a statue of him, and the name has become very common. In Trujillo in the square you can see Pizarro on a bronze steed, and if you go into staryhsten up the winding streets of this preserved medieval appearance of the city, suddenly you will come to the church of Santa Maria, the only church within the city walls; climb the bell tower, and you'll see at the bottom of the same gray stone houses, which saw Pizarro child.
