In the childhood and adolescence we all dream to visit the Middle Age, to taste the past and to live in a castle? Many of us are impressed by the novels of Miguel de Cervantes, Shakespeare, Sir Walter Scott. Girls wanted to be Princess, for which knights in shining armor should fight at tournaments, and all the boys at that time imagined themselves to these fearless knights, able to move mountains just to win the heart of his beloved princess.
