Montañana is a mediaeval town that witnessed the Reconquista, where it played an important role. A place that faced up to Al-Ándalus, and that rose from its own ashes.
It was declared an Artistic-Historic Complex in 1974 and an Asset of Cultural Interest as a Monumental Complex in 1984.
“Mediaeval village crowned by an impressive Romanesque church with excellent frescoes. The entire stone village is an unmissable destination. What’s more, the guide is very good.” Ángel Barcelona
The historic and defensive significance of Montañana reveals itself as you wander its cobbled streets, which have seen more than 10 centuries come and go.
This village is packed with historic buildings and you can admire how Romanesque design gives way to the Gothic style. Here, you’ll find sites like:
-San Juan hermitage.
-Three towers: Cárcel, Mora and Eras.
Wander along the walls and down the main street: Calle Mayor. Don’t forget to look up from the walls and cobblestones to admire the beautiful natural setting that envelops this village.
When you visit Montañana, you’ll discover the lifestyle of the people who used to inhabit this pretty enclave. Here, you can visit a recreation of an authentic 13th-century hospital, or see what a traditional house was like, who the inhabitants lived with, and how they organised themselves.
