The Alcázar de Molina de Aragón is a castle in Molina de Aragón. The town is not in the Aragón region, however, but in Castile-La Mancha in the province of Guadalajara. El Cid once resided here and in 1129 it was conquered from the Moors by Alfonso I of Aragón. Presumably that's why the town is so named.
