Gran Canaria has become an increasingly popular tourist destination over the years. If you’re planning a trip to this Spanish island but want to stay somewhere a bit off the beaten path, Acusa Seca Cave House is a perfect choice.

This stunning cave dwelling was carved into the side of the mountain in the tradition of the island’s native populations, and its roots date back to the sixth-century Berbers, who were the island’s first inhabitants.
