Cave Homes of Cortes de Baza – Granada – Spain

 

The small village is in a beautiful valley east of Granada, a region that has been inhabited since the Bronze Age. Romans and then Muslims lived here, probably attracted by its hot springs.  The houses of Cortes are carved directly out of the earth into the hills and whitewashed inside and out.   The Muslims brought this tradition to live in caves and today, many of them are in the process of rehabilitation and have become a tourist attraction.

  1. El Turismo Aventura brinda una forma de vivenciar esta actividad desde una perspectiva totalmente activa, donde el viaje,
    exploración o recorrido implica afrontar con algunas situaciones particulares o cuando menos, no del todo previsibles.
    El deporte y las experiencias de aventura son las que definen la esencia de
    esta forma de turismo que se practica escencialmente en la naturaleza y
    que a diario se incrementa y es más disfrutada por turistas de todas las edades.
