  • 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.

  • Church circular somewhat limited on the inside, but very interesting to visit. Very well located and with great views.
