Embark on a journey of discovery in the quaint town of Rojales, nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes near Benijofar and Ciudad Quesada.

Here, you’ll encounter a treasure trove of hidden gems, including the captivating cave houses that grace the hillsides to the south of town, each adorned with intricate patterns of shells, tiles, and mirrors, a testament to the artistic vision of Manuel Fulleda Alcaraz.

Step into the vibrant heart of the community at Cuevas del Rodeo, where an eclectic artists’ colony thrives amidst the hillside, boasting workshops and studios where creativity knows no bounds. These caves, once dug by coal miners from Murcia and later inhabited by Gypsies, now stand as a testament to the enduring spirit of artistic expression.
