Visiting Montefrí­o is an amazing experience as the magnificent Arab fortress and the Church de la Villa boldly sit on top of a rock. This is accompanied by beautiful scenery in the surrounding area. From the road that links Montefrí­o with Íllora, one can access the Peña de los Gitanos, a natural location terminating to the north by a large valley, and to the south by the Sierra de Parapanda.

The rocky alignment running in parallel to the valley offers a spectacular view of calcareous nature with dense vegetation of forests full of brushwood and holm oaks. This is an ideal setting to go hill walking and its many paths will take you to a fantastic megalithic complex formed by hundreds of dolmens of Neolithic origin.
