Guadix is a small town near Sierra Nevada, South Spain, known for its houses build in caves.
Guadix is located next to the A92, near Granada, in direction to Almería and its main feature is its neighborhood of houses in caves.
The soils of the Guadix region are made of sandstones and there are several villages where residents have taken advantage of this feature to make cave houses.
You would certainly think that this type of building was no longer in use today, but the caves are still used by residents and some have been converted into tourist houses. We stayed in one and are very comfortable.
It's worth stopping for one day and visit Guadix, the Cuevas area (where there is a greater concentration of these caves) and Guadix Cathedral or Castle.
