King Sancho II was murdered by a duplicitous noble of Zamora, Bellido Dolfos, who tricked the king into a private meeting.After the death of Sancho, Castile reverted to his deposed brother Alfonso VI of León.The Spanish proverb, No se ganó Zamora en una hora, literally, Zamora wasn't won in an hour, is a reference to these battles.It is the Spanish equivalent of the English proverb "Rome wasn't built in a day." During the 12th century, the city was extraordinarily important for its strategic position in the wars between the Kingdom of León and Arabs to conquer the Iberian Peninsula.Zamora, under his sister who was allied with Leonese nobles, resisted.Sancho II of Castile, assisted by El Cid, lay siege to Zamora.Food specialities in Zamora include the pulses, the chickpeas from Fuentesauco or 'garbanzos', the exquisite cheese made from sheep's milk, honey from Sanabria, asparagus from Guareña, peppers from Benavente, steak from Aliste, mushrooms, game, cold meats, cakes and sweets.Others are the rice dishes from Zamora and the Toro wines (very dark, almost black, nowadays made using modern techniques - with a rapidly growing reputation for their taste and quality).

Fog occurring frequently over the winter period, often lasting for days, has tended to lower the average temperature.

During Roman rule it was in the hands of the Vaccaei, and was incorporated into the Roman province of Hispania Tarraconensis. After the establishment of the Christian Kingdom of Asturias, the settlement became a strategic frontier post and was the scene of many fierce military engagements between the Muslims and Christians.

It was on the road from Emerita (modern Mérida) to Asturica Augusta (modern Astorga). Control of the town shifted between the two sides a number of times from the early eighth century to the late eleventh centuriy. Henry IV granted Zamora the epithet of "most noble and most loyal city".

Traditional dishes include bacalao a la tranca (a cod dish), el pulpo a la sanabresa (an octopus dish), dos y pingada (two fried eggs with fried ham, usually served in Easter) and presas de ternera (a veal dish).

For dessert there is the rebojo Zamorano, a very tasty though hard type of bun, and las natillas almendradas (Spanish style custard with almonds).

As a result, the city preserves many churches and buildings from that time.
