Montalbán de Córdoba
Montalbán de Córdoba is situated to the south of Cordoba, and is part of la Campina Alta. It lies 44 kilometres from Cordoba and has an altitude of 280 metres above sea level. It has a population of more than 4,000 inhabitants and a municipality of 34.5 square kilometres. The municipality limits with La Rambla, Montilla, Aguilar de la Frontera and Santaella.
Its name, of Latin origin whose roots are in the predominantly Castilian era, refers precisely to the location of the population and the colour of their land: Montalbán or “white mountain”.
Montalbán’s territory was in Muslim times limited between the Coras of Córdoba and Cabra. Their lands would to be definitively conquered by the troops of Ferdinand III on his second march on Cordoba: February 1240 – March 1241.
During the late medieval centuries Montalbán was part of the heritage of various noble houses of Cordoba. It was to be don Pedro Fernández de Córdoba, lord of Aguilar and marquis of Priego, who bought it in the early sixteenth century. Thus, like other villages of the countryside of Cordoba, Montalban was part of the estate of the Marquis of Priego.
