Summary
Eleventh-century Spain is divided into Christian kingdoms and Moorish strongholds. The young Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar, a Castillian knight who has been dubbed El Cid [El Cid Campeador "The Lord Champion"] by his followers, vows to free his country from the invader. The epic tale romanticizes the years of love, warfare, revenge, rivalries, as El Cid becomes a revered warrior. Much of the movie was shot on location in Spain - including the castles of Belmonte (Cuenca) and Peñíscola (Castellón)
