Montecorto, which means low mountain, is situated 20km west from Ronda and is the most westerly village in the Malaga Province. Montecorto falls on the northern boundary of the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. Montecorto is a sleepy white village with an ageing population and 650 inhabitants, which swells to about 1200 during Ferias and Festivals. The main festivals are the Romeria (First weekend in May), San Juan (21st June), The Fiesta of the Virgen del Carmen (16th-19th July) and the Feria de Emigrantes (15th August). The main source of work is in agriculture, construction and tourism. Many of the villagers have to travel to Ronda, the Costa del Sol or further afield in their search for work. This is still a very traditional village where the daily siesta, between 2pm and 5pm is still sacred. It is actually possible to hear a pin drop between these times. With an ageing population you can often see groups of old men sat playing cards or dominos outside one of the bars enjoying a ‘Manzanilla’ (white sherry) and a chat.
