Description

Setenil’s unique and extreme urban beauty make it one of the main tourist destinations in the Sierra de Cádiz. The houses, some below rocks and others on top of or even inside the rocks, create different street levels, forming charming nooks and  corners such as those in the streets Calle de las Cuevas de la Sombra and Calle de las Cuevas del Sol. The present-day village has its origins in Medieval times and the area today officially referred to as Setenil stands on the ancient Almohad  settlement. The castle overlooking the village is a Medieval fortress (14th-15th Centuries), which retains its keep and a well. Its heritage is completed by the Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación Parish Church, the old Town Hall and the Hermitages of Nuestra Señora del Carmen and San Sebastián.
