Living Under a Rock: Setenil de las Bodegas

© Flickr CC user Feli García

The Andalucian town of Setenil de las Bodegas looks like something from the set of a culturally adventurous fantasy film, but dwelling is actually common in Andalucia; being so close to the African continental plate, geological forces threw up mountain ranges and volcanoes that are perfectly suited for habitation. The rocks and caves make for surprisingly easy settlement, and the nearby Cueva de la Pileta shows evidence of a human presence up to 25,000 years ago. After that, though, the inhabitants of the caves here are mostly ignored up until the 12th century, when Setenil’s  castle appears on the historical record.
