El Fraile

LoadingAdd to My Granada

There is a fascinating rock formation caused by wind erosion in the Cerro del Fraile. Legend has it that at the time when the Catholic Kings fought to conquer Granada, an old wealthy Arab merchant, who possessed a number of estates and a castle in Beas, decided to flee the region. Before leaving, he built this rock structure to hide his treasure inside it, so that one day his descendants could return and retrieve it.
