In the foothills of the Atalaya Castle of Villena, part of the old cave houses of the historic centre have been recovered by members of the Tuareg association, to convert them into the first cave houses in the town that people can visit, decorated with Arabic articles.

In fact, the construction of cave-houses in the upper part of the historic centre was very common in Villena during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. These were built by humble citizens, attaching the houses to the rock of the Sierra de la Villa and excavating the calcareous stone of the same to give shape to rooms that were used for different purposes: rooms, pantries, etc.


Address: Plaza de Santa Bárbara.
