Imagine how it would be that instead of a ceiling you have in the house a rock. This is how for centuries, the Spaniards from the Setenuil de las Botegas live like. Its exact location is 157 kilometers northeast of Cadiz.
The name was given by the catholics that started to cultivate grapes obtaining impressive harvests – this is where the Bodega comes from, from tavern Spanish names.
This village is located in the Andalusia region of Spain and it is unique not just for its position but as well for the houses, the shops and the coffee shops that are built in the rock. What is this all about actually? Many years ago the former caves have been transformed in living places and nowadays the village is crossed by the Trejo River, has 3000 inhabitants. Their main jobs are the agriculture work and the production of sausages. It is known best for its chorizo and its cerdo from the pigs bred in the hills nearby. The pastry is also a must here – you can taste eco pastry things and fruits and vegetables that come from the local farms.
In this small village one can as well see a castle, a fortress and La Encarnacion Church. Then, one can visit it during the Saint Sebastian festival in January or the Carnaval in February or the Lent feria, which takes place in August. The Saint Week is as well very famous.
The free time passing offers one many possibilities to choose from. One can do sight-seeing, enjoy nature, climb the vestigial tower, motorbike, etc. Enjoy!
