The Palace of the Dukes of Marqueda was built during the 14th century by the Cárdenas family. More interesting than its architecture is the alternative name: Cava Palace. This is the site of the former residence of Count Don Julian, a Visigoth governor. When his daughter Florinda was violated by Visigoth King Don Rodrigo, the count retaliated by inviting the Muslims to attack Spain. This resulted in the conquest of Toledo – the Visigoth capital – in 711 and the eventual collapse of the Visigoth Kingdom. In Arabic, the name Cava means prostitute.
