Campo de Montalban is a semi-firm to firm Spanish cheese made from a blend of cows', sheep's and goats' milk in La Mancha. This cheese resembles manchego in texture and appearance, and until 1985 it was in fact considered a manchego. Campo de Montalban is distinguished by its three milk blend, while manchego contains only sheep's milk. The flavor is also similar to manchego. However, the characters of all three milks are noticeable in Campo de Montalban.

Campo de Montalban comes in waxed barrel-shaped wheels, with an embossed herringbone design, much like its all-sheep cousin, manchego.
