    Beach_dog and a real Trogladita

    Many residents invite you into their homes, to see how they live. I accepted an invitation from this lady and her husband. Inside their home it was cool, and the house had two stories with a small winding staircase carved from the rock leading to the bedrooms upstairs. If you are invited in it is customary to give them a few Euros for their troubles. Although the visit was brief it was interesting to see how the people live quite comfortably in their homes, having modern conveniences, just a lack of windows.

    Barrio de los Trogladitas 1

    A cave house.

    The Barrio de los Trogladitas is the area of Guadix where many of the local population still live in caves. Designed to be cool in summer and warm during the winter months, they serve their purpose well. All you see from the outside is the building front, and the occassional chimney sticking out of the rock above. The rooms are carved from the soft rocks behind.

    views from a room

    A must do activity is to stay in a cave house. The ones we were, were very modern, but also you can stay in old ones.

    I liked the experience, but I have to recognise, that in my opinion, to live there all year it can nto be very healthy lol, not much ventilation, or maybe i think this, as all the little animals bite me lol (sorry not much fond of bichos, but seems that they love to bite me lol)

    But the views from the room of the hotel were superb.... just amaizing...

    Like any 'respectable' Spanish town you can find a cathedral. So if you aren't interested in caves homes, maybe you can come and have a look at the old cathedral.

    Something for everyone in Guadix!

    Not all of Guadix is like the troglodyte neighbourhood. The rest of it is like a 'normal' Spanish town which is pretty and well worth a look too.
