    The Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa was a major battle on 16 July 1212 of the Christian reconquest of Spain in which the Almohads (a Muslim dynasty of North Africa and Spain) were severely defeated by the combined armies of Castile, Aragon, Navarre, and Portugal. The battle was fought about 40 miles (64 km) north of Jan, in Andalusia, southern Spain.
