Viana is a small town and region located in Navarre, northern Spain. In 1507, Cesare Borgia was killed during the Siege of Viana, and was later buried there.


Siege of Viana

King John III of Navarre ordered his brother-in-law, Cesare Borgia, who had just escaped from prison, to lead his 10,000 men to Viana, in order to retake the Viana Castle from Louis de Beaumont, the Count of Lerin.[1]

Upon learning about Cesare's location from the Apple of Eden, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Mentor of the Italian Assassins, traveled to Viana to assassinate the Templar Grand Master. In 1507, Ezio and Cesare finally confronted each other in the town for their last battle.[2]

Castel Viana

Viana was also home to Castel Viana, a large fortified palace held by Louis de Beaumont. The castle was an extremely strong natural fortification, and due to it being almost impenetrable, Cesare had to rely on wearing his opponent out to win the battle.
