Featured in Part Two of our recent Ghost Towns of the World article, Cañada de Benatanduz sits high on the Sierra de la Cañada mountain range at an altitude of 1,422 feet. The municipality became one of the first in the region to be granted its charter in 1198, after the Knights Templar had retaken the area from the Islamic Moorish Empire. But the town’s population fell dramatically following the Spanish Civil War and today, Cañada de Benatanduz is little more than a ghost town, home to just 64 inhabitants as of 2004.
