Food Spain

Welcome to Setenil de las Bodegas!

A gem of Southern Spain!

66814194_847924712252053_7007886493779755008_n Setenil de las Bodegas is a small village about two hours west of Malaga. It is a historical heritage site of Spain and it’s part of the “Ruta de los pueblos blancos” (the route of the white villages).

We decided to stop at this marvelous hamlet to visit its characteristic houses, nestled in the stone. Some of them are built in it, some of them on top of it, some streets are just shadowed by stone! Long, narrow streets slither around the houses, creating different levels and making the walk in this village simply stunning!

You know well how our travels are always about looking for some local cuisine, so we stopped to have a bite at Bar Cafeterìa Alhambra, where we tried queso Payoyo (a cheese named after a local goat breed called capra payoya and made with goat and sheep milk) and migas setenileñas (fried bread with chorizo, jamòn iberico, peppers and fried egg)

Happy and full, we continued our visit. If you want a tip: just get lost along the beautiful streets, calle Cuevas del Sol, calle Cuevas de la Sombra and climb up to admire the stunning view of the village from above!
