Granada, Spain is known as Europe’s “capital of caves”.
Written by Avishay Kumar on October 1, 2023
The Sacromonte and Guadix caves in Granada are home to communities that still enjoy the ancient Spanish cave-dwelling way of life, which dates back to the 15th century. Nestled in a rocky formation here are 2,000 underground houses, discreetly carved into the stone. In the past, these caves were where people fled to escape religious and racial persecution. Today they offer a place where residents continue to live off the land how people used to centuries before them.
