Title Terra nostra / Carlos Fuentes.
Author Fuentes, Carlos.
Summary Phillip II of Spain, the "Defender of the Faith," is tired and ill. Years of fighting the infidel, excessive takes and the plague have taken a toll on his subjects. At a time where castles are giving way to cities, Phillip seeks refuge in the place he had built to become his final dwelling: the Escorial. Suddenly three mysterious men bearing a cross come to him; one talks about a new world, a paradise of cities, volcanoes and pyramids, where cruelty, pain, and death rule and the Defender of Faith discovers the time to rest has not come yet
