Montanejos is a village renowned for its hot-springs. It is located in the inland region called Upper Mijares, in the province of Castellón, at 90 km from Valencia city. Montanejos is at 418 m, surrounded by beautiful mountains and stunning scenery, very near the Natural Park of the Espadán Sierra.
The last Moorish King Abu Zeit took refuge in Montanejos where he built some baths for his favourite ladies, including Queen Zucaina, so they could keep their beauty for ever thanks to the properties of its special thermal water.
