The Andalucia region
Interesting places to visit from Monda are El Chorro and the Lakes, Antequera, Ronda with the oldest bullring in Spain and El Tajo across the gorge. Cordoba with its Mosque, Sevilla with its famous cathedral and La Giralda the golden tower and Granada with the famous Alhambra Palace and splendid Generalife Gardens.
A short drive from Monda is Istan with its Lake Concepcion which is now a reservoir supplying the coast with its water supply. Marbella with its old town and Plaza de los Naranjos - Orange Square, full of wonderful restaurants and shops and Puerto Banus with its amazing yachts and night-life.
The castle of Monda which is now a hotel dates back to the 10th Century and Julius Caesar once dined there.
The Spanish love their fiestas and Monda is no exception with Dia de Andalucia 28 February where they prepare soup for the whole village. New Year's Eve - Noche Viejo everyone takes their champagne into the square and as the clock chimes 12 times to let the New year in everyone has to eat their 12 grapes and make a wish.
In August is the Feria and all the children and ladies dress up in their flamenco dresses and during the day dance in the square then in the evenings there is a stage and a band plays non stop all night. In May there is a Romeria in the next village of Guaro and in June the Romeria in Coin where you can see all the Spanish horses and horsemen in traditional dress.
