In Setenil de las Bodegas, the natural and cultural heritage work hand in hand to offer a wonderful destination for rural tourism.
Travel to the heart of the Sierra de Cadiz mountain range and holiday in Setenil de las Bodegas, a picturesque town that stands out among the towns on the Route of the White Villages of Cádiz. Breathe in the tranquillity of its unique streets and the friendliness of the locals, who will make your visit a truly unforgettable experience.
Take advantage of our cheap trips to Setenil de las Bodegas to immerse yourself with the beautiful streets of this quaint village. The houses, built both above and below the rock, as well as inside, mean the streets are at different heights. This results in such special spots as the Calle de las Cuevas de la Sombra, and the Calle de las Cuevas del Sol (streets of the shadowy caves and the sun, respectively).
Fancy a drink in one of the caves? Choose from one of the restaurants and bars that offer local cuisine and taste the typical hearty cortijera soup while you forget about the heat outside.
The Castle of Setenil de las Bodegas is located on the rocks that are home to many of the houses of the village, in the Barrio del Castillo. All that remains of the castle are the main tower and part of the walls, the remains of the ancient Nasrid fortress that used to protect the town.
On the same rock where the castle stands, you’ll find the impressive Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación, a church dating back to the 15th century. Curiously, the religious building combines both Gothic and Mudéjar styles, a union of two churches. The former town hall, once an entry to the fortress, is now a tourist office.
The little shrines spread around the town retain their Andalusian charm and are a colourful sight you're bound to remember. A trip around the town should include the shrines of Nuestra Señora del Carmen, San Benito, Nuestra Señora de la Concepción and San Sebastián.
