The conquest of Montefrío by the Christian was attempted several times since Alfonso XI conquered Alcalá la Real in 1342. However, The conquest of Montefrío finally happened  in 1483. 
After the conquest of Montefrío and the rest of the region by los Reyes Católicos, there was a long period of peace and tranquility in which Christians settled. Economy was based on agriculture. The Church of La Villa was built upon the Arab castle, by Diego de Siloé. In addition, the hospital of San Juan de los Reyes and the Church of San Sebastian were built too as a sign of the change from Muslims to Christians.
