Historic place

It’s a very very beautiful little village and it’s calm lazy ( perhaps not during the olive time! ) and there are a very historical plaze from the 14th century - lots of small streets - good for walking. You have to go to the top to the church - it’s marvellous!

Impressive and unusual church imitation of Agrippa pantheon at Rome. Acoustic is mysteriously amazing.

Stunning views and location
Sep 2018 • Couples
The Iglesia de la Encarnacion with its round dome and Neo-Classical design really stands out in the centre of the town but its also well worth climbing up the hill Iglesia de la Villa is a very different Gothic church from the 16th Century.

Its well worth having a good walk around the town as there are excellent views but the walk up to the castle is quite demanding.

Very Pleasant Round Church
Feb 2018 • Couples
We found this church next to the restaurant we were going to visit. This is the first time i have ever seen a round church. If you are in the area it is well worth a visit. Public Free parking is only 200 yards away.

Stunning Church
Oct 2017 • Couples
Really nice example of architecture and well worth going inside to see the artwork and the inside of the dome. We parked way down the hill and walked up, as the streets up leading into the town are very steep. Parking also a bot restricted in town.

Beautiful Church - worth the visit
May 2017 • Couples
The church is unique in its architecture and style, baroque style, neoclassic, it was really simple but inviting to see this church. If you are visiting Montefrio, you have to make this stop and enjoy the view it has.

Worth the walk
May 2016 • Couples
Quite an uphill trek over rough terrain. You cannot go up by car or you may get stuck. Offers views of the whole city.

An amazing old round church
Nov 2015 • Couples
Montefrio is an amazing place. A picturesque town built on a hill with two churches - one on top of the hill and another, this one lower down. This church was built between 1786 and 1802 and designed by the architect Domingo Lois de Monteagudo. It was inspired by the Agrippa Pantheon in Rome. The church is round with a diameter of 30 metres and has amazing acoustics. Definitely a place to make a visit.

An amazing and beautiful building : the dome is truly stunning !
Outside, look up and see all the house martins' nest hard up against the projecting eaves !
Such a large and impressive church for a relatively small town.
Montefrio itself is a lovely unspoilt town, almost without tourists so prices are low and food and drink plentiful and reasonably priced compared to the cities nearby.
