Walk through the town...
Walking through the many small streets a surprise seems to await around every corner. The town is unaffected by tourism, just a few visitors, walk the area, it would be a pity to see this end, but I say see it quickly before the crowds come.
Cave Hotel, interior views
Again coming back to the cave hotel, these photos show some interior views of the rooms themselves. If you have the chance to take a few days off and enjoy being a troll for a few days, do it, the feeling is immense.
The first photo is the living room.
Second photo is the bedroom.
Third photo is Zohara giving us an idea of the scale of the cave rooms.
Fourth photo shows the well appointed kitchen.
Fifth photo shows the entrance to the second bedroom, the curved doorway is just about 2 meters in height.
Guadix view of Sierra Nevada Mountains
This view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains was from our room at the cave hotel, sorry about the blue spot, that happens sometimes with the camera and I have NO IDEA WHY....
But anyway it still does not take away from the beauty of the mountains we were planning to travel into on the morrow on way to Bubion.
Guadix's Arabic Touch: La Alcazaba
The Alcazaba is a military fortification and palace built in the 11th Century by the Arabs when they were in control of this part of Spain from the Centuries VIII to XV.
As you can see from the photo these old fortifications are well preserved and add to the beauty of this little town.
Come for the Choir, stay for the cave homes
While exploring the streets of old Guadix near the Cathedral we found this choir, so Zohara and Stacey joined in. Good thing the people in the choir were "stone deaf"....^O^
This is the reason we actually arrived in Guadix, to experience being a Trogdolyte for ourselves. This is the hotel, or rather part of it, that we stayed in, it is built like the cave homes here, with only the front facade of the home being built like a normal structure. The rest of the home is within the mountain.
One of the most amazing things about Guadix is the several neighbourhoods that are trogdolyte or underground...the homes have a facade that seems a typical white washed Andalusian Spanish home, but if you look "deeper" you find the the entire home is built into the hill behind the home.
