The small town of Setenil de las Bodegas is home to around 3,000 people. The Andalucian town, northeast of Cadiz, Spain, was built along a narrow river gorge eroded by the Rio Trejo river. Many of the houses are built into & under the walls of the gorge itself, a tradition which has dated back to pre-historic times. They can live in the gnarled caves & just construct a façade. It’s perfect for blocking the hot & cold temperatures that sweep the country.

Living Under a Rock - The Andalucian town of Setenil de las Bodegas looks like something from the set of a fantasy film, but cave dwelling is actually common in Andalucia; being so close to the African continental plate, geological forces threw up mountain ranges & volcanoes that are perfectly suited for habitation. The rocks & caves make for surprisingly easy settlement & nearby Cueva de la Pileta shows evidence of a human presence up to 25,000 years ago (Photo credit: Feli García)
