This Small Spanish Village Gives A Whole New Meaning To The Phrase "Living Under A Rock."

Tucked away in the south of Spain is a small town of approximately 3,000 people. It's so small, in fact, that you might even say it's under a rock. In another case, where reality is stranger than fiction, the town is literally situated beneath an enormous rock. 

Setenil de las Bodegas, Spain was settled during the 1st century AD and today is home to some of the region's best restaurants and bars.

The small Andalusian town, northeast of Cadiz, was built alongside a river gorge eroded by the Rio Trejo. Many of the houses are built into and under the walls of the gorge itself. Some houses only needed a single façade, using the natural surroundings.
