The arabs controlled Spain as far north as a line stretching from about Oporto, Vila Real, Zamora, Valladolid, north of Soria, Tudela, Huesca, Lérida, to between Tarragona and Barcelona. So no, the entire peninsula wasn't conquered. If it had been then the Kingdom of Castile would never have been able to pair with Aragon and drive the Moors south. -- You can turn away from me but there's nothing that'll keep me here you know And you'll never be the city guy Any more than I'll be hosting The Scooby Show Scooby Show - Belle and Sebastian
