ABOUT US

We are a family run holiday cave complex. Everything started in the nineties when we moved to Baza and started looking for a house. None of the houses we visited invited us to stay until the already very frustrated real state agent came up with the suggestion to look at caves for a habitat. First we hesitated, but when we started visiting cave-house we realized quite quickly that we had found our new habitat. We bought a very rustic cave and started learning about the statics and materials and how to turn it into our new home. Once it was finished, visitors came and all of them told us that we had done a great job. With our recently gained experience and passion for cave building we wanted to go on, and the idea of creating a cave complex for tourists and visitors of the Altiplano area started to take shape. We found the right location about 5 km outside of Baza and the adventure could start. It was an intensive learning process and we had to overcome quite a lot of obstacles.

The Al Jatib caves were finally inaugurated in 1999. We were amongst the pioneers in this field. We can offer you cave-appartments, a restaurant, arabic baths, a children play cave and an outdoor pool in summer for a magnificent and relaxing stay in a natural environment which has a lot to tell…

Relaxation from the dawn of time. In prehistoric times the basin of Baza was filled by a huge blue lake where Mammoths and Rhinoceroses grazed under the hungry eyes of primitive European man. Their remains & fossils can be admired nowadays at the museum nearby in Orce. Until 40 years ago this savage, beautiful forgotten part of the provence of Granada was full of small hamlets carved into the hills around the barren lands formed by the drying out of the old lake. Today restored to its original splendour at one of those Hamlets, where moors, plaster miners and subsistence farmers have successively sought refuge.

We can offer you a magnificent and unforgettable voyage back to the depths of time in breathtakingly beautiful accommodation formed by this unique way of life. Submerging yourself in this extraordinary land, you can enjoy some of your sweetest moments in Spain, the warmth and tenderness of our Hammam, our tasty Arab-Andalucian dishes as well as the magic of the Andalucian night of your dreams…

We would be delighted to welcome you in Al Jatib!
