  • I liked very much understand that, the as and because of house them caves and their way of life especially after having spent a few days in a home cave. The only thing I feel is not going at the beginning of my visit to Guadix, because I would have enjoyed more experience.

  • The most famous feature of the town is the cave dwellings in the Barrio de la Cuevas where around half the population live. When I visited the area, I thought that I was in a scene from 'The Lord of the Rings'! It was just like 'The Shire' - with little white chimneys poking out of the ground! The caves are not primitive dwellings, however but are a solution to the fierce heat of the Andalucian summer. The interior of the cave houses are cool in summer and warm in winter and have all the necessities of modern living - it is quite strange seeing television aerials on the little hillocks!
