Town Beneath A Giant Rock

120

Setenil de las Bodegas, a small town in the province of Cádiz, in Spain, would be indistingushable from other similar places in Andalusia if it weren’t partially built into the rock.  This is not a place for people suffering from claustrophobia, because here the rock literally hangs over your head, and not everybody would appreciate that. But this unusual, iconic place attracts many tourists who visit the three-thousand population town out of simple curiosity. The usual approach of constructing dwellings on top of the rock here gave way to a different solution. The newly-arried Christians in the 15th century hid their dwellings under the overhang of the local rock. Check it out for yourself.
