Montesa is a minicipality in the comarca  of La Costera, in the Valencian privince, Spain.

The Order of Montesa was established after the dissolution of the Templars and they were granted much of that order's possessions from various parts of Spain. Established in 1317, they were granted Montesa castle and given the primary responsibility for fighting the Muslims on the Valencian frontier. A strong earthquake in 1748 demolished most of the castle although it still conserves the outlines of its rooms and fortifications. A visit to the church and the museum are worthwhile.

Close by is La Mola, a rocky outcrop popular with climbers.
