Castle of la Villeta, Monda

Its origins go back to the Iberians. When the peninsular was dominated by the Arabs at the end of the 9th century, Omar Ben Hafsun, rebuilt the castle of Al Mundat, as an extra line of defence. Its remains can still be seen today. Later on it was named La Villeta and after it was destroyed by Sab Ibn Almundir the Hammudíes rebuilt it again towards the 11th century. Nowadays, it has been declared Good of Cultural Interest, and it has become a luxurious and comfortable hotel.
