The Soul of the City

Original title: El alma de la ciudad

It is the height of the Middle Ages and the re-conquest of Spain is advancing at an implacable rate, despite the best efforts of the Almohade empire to suppress it. In an idyllic spot located in the ample territories of Trasier, King Alfonso VIII establishes the new city of Ambrosia (a Greek name that sounds pagan in the Middle Ages and is soon transformed to Plasencia: which signifies "a pleasant place to live"). A young man called Blasco Jiménez, who is the Bishop’s right hand man, meets a beautiful woman who initiates him into the esoteric traditions of the Kabbalah. Suddenly, Blasco finds himself torn between two conflicting forces: his loyalty to the recently founded city or to his own freedom. After studying in Toledo, Blasco ends up becoming involved in the investigation of an ancient mystery in the city of Coria, a buried secret that will lead him to discover the explanation of the incredible events that have shaped his life.
