The tour

The origins of the mediaeval town of Montañana, a monumental site declared a place of Cultural Interest in 1984, go back to the 11th century, or even earlier. At that time, a fort was built on the hill formed between the San Miguel and San Juan ravines, and became part of the frontier line distributed along the Pyrenees to help in the Reconquest. Since then, several historical and building milestones have taken place, especially of two monuments at the end of the 12th and beginning of the 13th centuries, and again at the end of the 15th and start of the 16th centuries. A mediaeval town that has remained almost unchanged until the 21st century, like a fossil in time.
