The People In This Spanish Town Are Literally Living Under A Rock

Welcome to the town of Setenil de las Bodegas in Spain where 3,000 of its inhabitants literally live underneath a rock. The town sits along a narrow river gorge weather-beaten by the Rio Trejo River, with many of the houses built into and under the walls of the gorge itself.

These natural caves offer its residents certain incentives being that they don’t need to build complete houses to keep out the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter.

Some say inhabitants have resided in the cool caves since pre-historic times. And just because they’re living under a rock, literally, doesn’t mean these residents aren’t enjoying bars, restaurants and food shops that are ranked as the best in this region. The town is actually a pretty happening place, so they say. Rock on little town.
