Hondon Valley Scenes
With a name that literally means “George of the Friars” the charming village of Hondón de los Frailes is located in the beautiful Hondón valley about 40 km from the Alicante and the Costa Blanca coastline.
The municipality of Hondón de los Frailes covers and area about 12 km2 and has a population of just over 1,000 (2006 figures), it is bounded by the picturesque Sierra de los Frailes (which reach a height of 718 meters above sea level).
The name of the village originates due to the fact that it was owned by an order of Dominican Friars during the 17th Century and was controlled by the Corregimiento de Orihuela until 1833.
In 1840 along with the village of Redovan, Hondón de los Frailes became part of the municipality of Hondón de las Nieves and remained so until it gained its independence in 1926.
There is evidence of settlements in the area going back to ancient times and there was a Roman site there during their occupation of the Iberian Peninsular.
Later settlements by the Moors established Hondón as an agricultural area, producing crops such almonds, olives and grapes.
The present day village has mostly grown up around the 19th Century church, the Iglesia Virgen de la Salud, which was built by the Dominican Friars.
The Hondón de las Nieves ( George of the Snows) with its population of 2,300 is named fro the “Virgin of the Snow”, and the village church was built in her honour.
