Monturque in Cordoba is derived from a Mozarabic name meaning “rocky mountain”. It was an important town in Roman times, as can be seen from the numerous archaeological discoveries made here. It was also important in Arab times, until it was captured by Ferdinand III in 1240, after which it became known as Monturqueto.
