Montefrio

The inland town of Montefrio is located in the Andalusian province of Granada, on the border of Cordoba. The charming whitewashed village is set in between two ancient churches, and surrounded by a landscape of olive groves and crop fields.

Montefrio is an upbeat, friendly destination, ideal for those looking for a rural retreat, with lots of space and fresh air, but not to far off the beaten track that you can’t visit the coast, or cities of Cordoba and Granada.

About town

The white-washed town is very pleasant, with a Moorish feel, and offers good amenities such as shops, bars and restaurants.

The Iglesia de la Villa (church) is set above the town, but is well worth the steep climb to visit the 15th century building, which was constructed on the site of an old Moorish castle. The church is no longer in service, but there is history museum inside, which presents the history of Montefrio.

Down into the centre of town is the pantheon-style Iglesia de la Encarnación, which was designed by the well-known neoclassical architect, Ventura Rodriguez.

Places to visit
The archaeological site of Penas de los Gitano is situated just 7 kilometres from town, and presents evidence of human settlements from Neolithic to Bronze Age eras. Located in the same area are a Medieval citadel, a Roman fort and six water mills.

Cuisine

There is selection of traditional tapas bars and restaurants in town, and a hotel just outside of town, which serves good food.

Montefrio is famous for producing both chorizo and salchichon sausages, and morcilla, which is black pudding.

Climate

The climate of Montefrio is that of a typical Andalusian inland town. During the summer months the town gets hot, into late 30, early 40 degree temperatures. The spring and autumn is generally mild, and the winters do get slightly colder, than the nearby coastal region of Malaga and Costa Tropical.

Montefrio is an interesting Spanish town - but we didn't even start to explore its facilities as we were holidaying in the villa
