    Guadix view of Sierra Nevada Mountains

    by Martin_S. Written Aug 26, 2008
    Sierra Nevada Mountains from Guadix

    Favorite thing: 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 sunset

    by Martin_S. Written Aug 26, 2008
    Sunset in Guadix, Spain

    Favorite thing: It was nice sitting on the quiet hillside (or rather on our porch) at the cave hotel and enjoying our first Guadix sunset. It was surprising that we were less than 100 meters from the highway, yet we could not hear the cars.

    Cave Hotel, exterior views

    by Martin_S. Updated Aug 26, 2008
    Cave hotel, entrance to rooms, Guadix, Spain
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Some exterior views of the cave hotel we stayed in, the first photo shows the exterior of our rooms where you can see Zohara standing in the doorway...the smallest hotel door I have EVER experienced, only 60 centimeters wide unless you open the second "half" which made it 80 centimeters wide. The second photo shows the entrance to the suite of rooms below ours, since the rooms are built on and into the hillside they are terraced above one another.
    The lobby of the hotel is the largest section that has actual rooftops away from the hill. The next photo shows the demarcation line between where the external structure stops and the hill begins. Last but not least Zohara taking a load off her feet on our "porch" and parking area in front of our rooms.

    Cave Hotel, interior views

    by Martin_S. Written Aug 26, 2008
    Cave hotel, living room, Guadix, Spain
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Architecture around town

    by Martin_S. Written Aug 18, 2008
    What are the holes for, Guadix, Spain
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: As I have said I love architecture so Guadix was no exception when it came to wandering the streets to see what I could find. The first photo shows a building that had numerous square holes in the exterior, what in the world are they for...we conjectured that they may have been to hold up the scaffolding during construction...someone else suggested pigeon holes and even a type of structural strengthening point where you could place a beam spanning the width of the house like we saw quite often in the Netherlands.
    The arched bridge over the roadway to connect the cathedral to the nearby building was nice also, reminded me of Venice without the water.

    Guadix Cathedral

    by Martin_S. Written Aug 18, 2008
    Guadix Cathedral, Guadix, Spain
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: As in all middling to large villages or cities, Guadix has its own cathedral sitting very prominetly at the entrance to the town...here they also have a fountain with some greenry which makes the view much nicer. Usually I will not enter places of religion, but I do enjoy the architecture from outside. This particular structure looks like it has had its ups and downs and things added to it over the years.

    Walk through the town...

    by Beach_dog Updated Apr 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from the Cave district of the Alcazaba / City

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Barrio Troglodyte

    by Carmela71 Updated Mar 13, 2003

    Caves area

    Favorite thing: Visit the caves area, is called Barrio Troglodita, I am afraid is not great to do photos as cables are around and spoil it, also we had the sun in front and still I am doing my best with new camera hehehe ...

    You will find the locals call you to visit the caves, some do it for free and other expect some money for showing it.

    The caves are phantastic, cold in summer and warm in winter... so cozy ...

    The best breakfast!

    by Svillegas Updated Jan 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you are in Guadix you should go to have breakfast in the park. There's a small place in the middle of the park where you can taste the best "churros" with chocolate I have ever dreamed.

    After take a walk through the park, it has a very nice and well maintained garden.
