Setenil de las Bodegas

Under Muslim rule, the Berbers built the Xatanil fortress which played a very large part in the defence of the Kingdom of Granada. It was conquered after almost a century of repeated attempts, it was in fact the Marquis of Cadiz who succeeded in 1484, leading his troops of the Catholic Kings. Thanks to its privileged position, in 1501, it received the Charter of Privileges of the village of Setenil, offering its settlers good economic perspectives by dedicating themselves to the vine, cereals and stock breeding. At present, as well as the mentioned resources, we must add that of tourism which comes here to get to know its houses packed into the rock face, partly natural cave and partly man-made construction, and with an arrangement which follows the direction of the cliff faces and the different degrees of the slope.
