LOCATION.- Montoro is located on a hill above the river

Guadalquivir, 41 Km from Cordoba, beside the Andalusia Highway.

Its strategic location favoured early human settlements back in

prehistoric times, and large villages had grown up by historic

times. This long history can be seen in Montoro and all along the

Upper Guadalquivir in the form of settlements, castles, palaces,

churches, convents, mansions, etc. Thus, because of its

extraordinary landscape and immeasurable historic-artistic

heritage, Montoro was declared a Historic-Artistic Site, being

the first town in Andalusia to obtain this distinction.

The historic-archaeological heritage that is to be worked on is a

set of small caves or artificial grottos dug out of a bank of

sedimentary rock at the end of the Bronze Age, making use of

natural escarpments. They were used as a necropolis in the Bronze

Age, and are found all along the Mediterranean.
