Apparently we have to go back to Spain and do the Southern part because I really want to check out this little town called Setenil de las Bodegas.
Much of this town was built into the cliffs and the effect is incredible.
This is the kind of habitat that I would build in my sandbox or carve out of snow drifts as a kid. It reminds me of those mud homes built buy certain Indians in desert areas. I probably was heavily influenced by National Geographic.
The thing I love about this is that they are really using the landscape and incorporating it into the architecture. If this was suburban North America they would have leveled the place with dynamite and built McMansions on it.
