This photograph looks like an image from a science-fiction movie, in which a meteor has somehow come to rest on a Spanish village without crushing it. Or perhaps it could be someone having fun with Photoshop.
The reality is that this is a photo taken in a street in Setenil de las Bodegas, a small town in Spain, just a bit north of Gibraltar. Blogger MessyNessy explains how and why much of this town lives under a rock in an essay that includes many more fascinating photographs. It does not, however, include a map, which is provided below. Feel free to explore by zooming out and switching between map and satellite views.
What else can you learn about the region of Setenil de las Bodegas from exploring the map. What kind of agriculture appears to be prominent in this part of Spain?
