The Andalucia region


The name Alhambra comes from an Arabic root which means "red or crimson castle", perhaps due to the hue of the towers and walls that surround the entire hill of La Sabica which by starlight is silver but by sunlight is transformed into gold. But there is another more poetic version, evoked by the Moslem analysts who speak of the construction of the Alhambra fortress "by the light of torches", the reflections of which gave the walls their particular coloration. Created originally for military purposes, the Alhambra was an "alcazaba" (fortress), an "alcázar" (palace) and a small "medina" (city), all in one. This triple character helps to explain many distinctive features of the monument.


The Great Mosque of Cordoba was considered a wonder of the medieval world by both Muslims and Christians. Built on a Visigothic site, which was probably the site of an earlier Roman temple, the Great Mosque of Cordoba was begun between 784 and 786 during the reign of 'Abd al-Rahman, who escaped from Syria to the Iberian Peninsula


For those wishing to absorb some of the local Spanish culture, the picturesque whitewashed village of Montefrio is just 15 minutes drive away. Set in a dramatic location, the village is flanked by two hilltop churches, which dominate the skyline. It is a site of cultural interest, the Alcazaba fortress ruins can still be found at its highest points. Near the village, which has retained much of its Moorish character, there is a vast archaeological site known as Las Penas de Los Gitanos, famous for its prehistoric tombs and remains of roman and visigoth settlements. As much as it is rooted in history and a timeless agrarian lifestyle typical of the region, Montefrio is also a working town with its feet firmly in the present; it has a wide selection of shops, bars, restaurants, banks and other amenities, and a thriving, close- knit community that warmly welcomes visitors.

"Beautiful, peaceful, rural retreat!"

Our group of 8 adults and 2 kids stayed here in April. This place is amazing, the views just stun you into silent contemplation sometimes. It's hidden away at the edge of a hill near the small town of Montifrio.

We would highly recommend this place if you are looking for peace and quiet far from the maddening crowd. And if you get a chance, sample the Reme's cooking, she creates magic!
