  • 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...  more »
  • It is worth visiting it for the circular presented, inspired by the Pantheon of Rome Agripa.

  • Similar to the dome of the Pantheon of Agripa in Rome has a perfect sound. When we entered it was empty and we met a girl who sang in a low voice, his sweet sound was heard from any corner of the building. Relaxing experience.

  • Very unique and spectacular, Church is evident their relationship with the Pantheon of Rome. There are other churches of circular in Andalusia as Santa victory in Cordoba but it is not in the same style. Well worth visiting it.

  • Located in the heart of Montefrío, the most peculiar feature of this church is its plant, inspired by the Pantheon of Rome Agripa. Its immense dome has a diameter of 30 meters. It was built between 1786 and 1802, under the reign of Carlos III and his son, Carlos IV. The visit is free; the dome is dark, so it turns on for a few minutes and can thus appreciate it, just deposit a coin of €1 in a machine designed for this purpose. The opening hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 09.30 to 13.30 h. and from 19.30 to 21.00 h. (afternoon only for worship), and Sundays from 11.00 to 13.00 h.

  • Circular Church, with absence of decoration. Austere but that wonder when you enter.

  • The unique circular Church of Spain. Inspired by the Parthenon in Rome. If you go inside and you'll be awhile, better wrap up because it is quite cold. Next to the Villa, El Convento, the granary and the Roma penalty is of the five monuments in Montefrio you can not miss.
