Montejaque revisited

It's been just about two years since we last visited the lovely pueblo of Montejaque so today we headed off intending to refresh our memories and perhaps find a restaurant to have lunch.
Heading south of Olvera on the A-374 towards Ronda, we turned off right onto the MA-8403 that took us through the picturesque El Hundidero gorge and on to Montejaque.

Arriving at about 1.15pm, we drove through the narrow streets, trying to park near to the centre of the village. However, our way was blocked at the Plaza de la Constitución so we turned around, parked on the outskirts of the village and walked back in.

It's a very pretty village with a population of about a thousand. The oldest part above the Plaza has very steep, winding and narrow streets but well worth the effort for the great views over the village and the surrounding countryside.

Many of the houses were made all the more attractive by their brightly painted doors and windows.

We had lunch from a tasty but limited menu at a restaurant in the main square before heading back home.
