Montefrio Granada Spain

Details

Situated in the north/west of the Province of Granada less than 50km from the Capital. Montefrio was officially declared a Town of Historical and Artistic Interest in 1982 and forms part of the Poniente Granadino - The Last Frontier of Al-Andalus. The town sits at just over 830m above sea-level in a landscape made up of mountainous slopes and olive groves with a skyline dominated by the monumental El Centinela.

The history of Montefrio dates back to at least the Roman times and archaeological evidence uncovered at the nearby Las Penas de los Gitanos suggests a human presence in the area going back to the Neolithic Age. During the Conquest of Granada there were several failed attempts at conquering the town but, on 26th June 1486 this onetime Arab stronghold finally fell to the Catholic Monarchs.

This picturesque town is comprised of many steep, winding streets lined with white-washed houses that give the visitor a sense of times gone by while the hub is centred around two main squares, the Plaza de Espana and the Plaza J. Anotonio which almost merge as one and it is around the latter that the main shopping area can be found. Due to its inland location Montefrio has remained relatively untouched by mass tourism making it very much a 'locals' town that has retained a typically Spanish feel and charm.
