Quirky Corners of the World: Setenil de las Bodegas

The narrow streets of Setenil de las Bodegas are set into a narrow gorge in the Province of Cadiz, Andalucia, Spain

Built along the narrow river gorge and into the gorge walls itself, Setenil de las Bodegas is an quirky little town in Spain, about 70 miles south-east of Seville. With a population of about 3000, people have been living in the narrow little ‘houses’ for years, though really they are nothing more than facades, the inner walls being those of the gorge rocks.

Ready made homes! Many of the houses are built into and under the walls of the gorge itself

This place is definitely on my ‘to see’ list. I think I’ll pop by on my way from Portugal to Morocco, apparently the restaurants are among the best in the region, famous for its olive oil, honey and jam.

Definitely on my ‘to visit’ list.
