Setenil de las Bodegas

Setenil de las Bodegas is a small town, population around 3,000, in the province of Cádiz, Spain, and is famous for its dwellings built into rock overhangs above the Rio Trejo.

The journey began, and ended, in bright sunshine and 19 degrees (Nerja), but in between it was overcast and cooler near Ronda and then drizzle and 9 degrees in Setenil de las Bodegas.

The town is built along the Rio Trejo with many houses being built into the rock walls of the gorge itself, created by enlarging natural caves or overhangs and adding an external wall.

Typical Moorish white-washed houses with very narrow streets – but that doesn’t prevent them from being two-way for traffic!! A very picturesque little town.
