The Andalucia region

The overall region of this part if Andalucia is known as 'El Altiplano de Granada' and is a land of contrasting landscapes of lakes and mountains and flat planes.

Outdoor sports, such as walking, climbing, water sports, swimming, horse riding, fishing are all popular in the area. The unspoiled natural surroundings also attracts both professional and amateur photographers.

One of the most interesting historical and current features of this area is the traditional and very 'Aldaluz' houses in form of cave dwellings, of which Cueva Santa Maria is one. Excavated from the rock face.

Fuente Nueva

Fuente Neuva,(home to Cueva Santa Maria), makes a great Andalusian holiday base and really gives you the chance to experience all things Spanish, in Real and Unspoilt Spain. The magical hamlet, of Fuente Nueva, is made up of primarily cave dwellings, approximately 200 dwellings in all. Set in the Spanish Countryside, with outstanding views of the Sierra de Maria Mountain Range. Staying in this unspoilt hamlet, is to truly take a step back in time, to 'A Land that time has forgotten'. Fuente Nueva is a tranquil and peaceful, a place to come, to breath in the fresh air, and to relax and unwind.

Fuente Nueva,sits on the site of what was once a great pre-historic lake, where mega mammals once roamed. Local archaeological digs, one, Fuente Nueva 3, is a short walk from Cueva Santa Maria. Evidence of earliest European man, dated 1.3 million years ago has been found during excavations.. Many of the remains found at these sites these sites can be viewed, in Orce's Museum of Prehistory.

Orce, (of which Fuente Nueva is a hamlet off), is a short 5 minute drive from Cueva Santa Maria . Orce is a historical and traditional Spanish Village ,whose historic heritage is clearly evident, with a castle, a museum and two historic palaces. Made up of quaint streets and traditional houses.

Orce for a small village has a wealth of amenities including supermarket, butchers, banks, green grocers, fish mongers and freshwater swimming pool, castle, museum and much more. The village also has a number of good bars and restaurants, most of which give free tapes with drinks. They are all traditionally Spanish and very welcoming. As is the way with the Southern Spanish, local cooking and traditions are taken seriously and the food served in the restaurants is to b e savoured and enjoyed.
