Looking back to Montefrio

Montefrio, Granada, Spain view map

Montefrío is a town and municipality in the Granada province of southern Spain. The ruins of a Moorish castle sits near the highest point. Being built midway between the Sierra de Priego and Sierra Parapanda, and commanding the open valley between these ranges, it became one of the chief frontier fortresses of the Moors in the 15th century.
