Setenil de las Bodegas

Andalucia is blessed with many beautiful white villages. But one of the most unique among the villages would have to be Setenil de las Bodegas in the province of Cadiz. Most of the Andalucian villages were built on pinnacles and hills, whereas what makes this village stand out from the others is the fact that it was built out of a network of caves. The town was originally built into the rocks to moderate indoor temperature as the rocks are a natural cooling system from the scorching Andalucian sun. It has remained the same in design ever since. The White houses appear to emerge from the rocks under the cliffs and some even have olive groves on their roof. It looks magical!

We decided to take a day trip there with Vilal´s camera and new gimbal (woooooo) to get some footage of the lovely city. We spent the day walking around the lovely white streets visiting the towns special sights such as la Iglesia de la Encarnación, the troglodyte dwellings and the various restaurants and bars that line it. Here are some pictures of our trip. We got more video footage than pictures so we are going to try and create something with that in the near future.
