Montillana Information

There are no remains from Prehistoric times, what is sure is that Montillana was already  a town during the Arab era. Due to its location on the border of the province, the town suffered a great harassment by Christian knights who were settled in Baeza.

Montillana was conquered by the Christian Monarchs on their way to Granada. During the XVI century, there were some Muslim rebellions that only finished when all the Muslims were expelled from the town.

Since that time Montillana was part of the town of Colomera, until the 19th  century when the town was segregated from Colomera and was declared a town on its own.
