Another greener pasture in spain...

The Town Under Rocks in Spain

The story of the city starts in the year 1484.

Named after its once flourishing wineries - bodegas - Setenil is quite unique. 


Most of the houses in this small village are carved directly in stone, which is why the small town gets it unique look and attraction of people from around the world.  

 The name Setenil developed from the Latin septem nihil –"seven times no" – which refers back to the period of

 the Christian reconquest, when Catholic kings tried to win back territory from the Moors, who had come from Africa and ruled the Iberian peninsula since 711. In Setenil's case, only the seventh reconquest attempt was successful.
