Originally a Moorish farming community, Montanejos remained populated by Arabs until their expulsion in 1609, when it was repopulated by settlers from Aragon. Today it is known primarily for its numerous outdoor recreational opportunities and scenery.

- Fuente de Los Baños. The hot spring is located in a region known for its mountains, deep gorges and scenic nature. The crystalline waters of the lagoon bubble up from the earth at a temperature of 25°C all year round. This place well known by the locals is still undiscovered by most travellers. The story goes that the hot spring was the preferred bathing and relaxation site for a Moorish king´s harem. The water was said to keep his women young and beautiful. Dip into the water for a swim and explore the lagoon snorkeling, see the fish around you and discover the hidden caves. For the brave there´s the option to jump off cliffs right into the deepest part of the lagoon. Access by public transportation is difficult.
- Montanejos has one of the most important climbing areas in Spain. Most of the few hundred routes are placed in Barranco de la Maimona, a ravine with impressive calcareous walls. The levels range between 3 and 8c.
