After leaving Grazelema, we drove to Setenil de Las Bodegas. This little town is built inside a narrow canyon. An cliff-ringed island in the center of the canyon held a fortress and church. Buildings are actually built into caves under the overhanging cliffs. The town was a Moorish holdout for years during the Reconquista. It fought 7 battles with the Christian town of Olvera, only a few miles away. These seven battles and the wine cellars of the caves contributed to the town’s name. Album here.
The last town of the day was Olvera, dominating by a fortress and church on a tall hill. Great views as clouds rolled in and the sun dropped lower into the sky.
