Caves Andalucia

Cave living in Andalucia... As well as Spanish recipes we also also like to publish a few posts about the local culture, the area, fiestas and Orce village itself.

Living in a cave... may seem very strange to some but they are fantastic dwellings, quite unique and there is a culture that goes with them that is friendly, generous, enjoyable and certainly something that can only be found in Andalucia!

As the Spanish cave concept grew after being featured on "A Place in the Sun" with Carol Smillie and numerous media articles more and more expatriates began to realise that an alternative option was available to that of the costas. The pics above and below are now available from the Junta de Andalucia tourist board in all major airports.

Later this week we are extending a bedroom at the back of the cave so will be posting some photos of the work so stay tuned.

Reading this post led me to look around at the rest of your site and I was particularly interested to read that Spanish children can start school at the age of three! Wow!
A whole new way of life!
