Did you know that there is a medieval village built on a basalt cliff of 50 metres high and almost a kilometer long? It looks like it could fall off the cliff any moment. Most houses were made out of volcanic rock.
Amazing, right?
Do you know in which country we can find this spectacular village?
It is indeed Castellfollit. 
A bit more about it:
Narrow streets, breathtaking landscapes, buildings dating back to medieval times, stone walls and a giant basalt cliff are just some of the features of Castellfollit de la Roca.
Located in the province of Girona, Spain, (day tours in Spain) this odd looking place has no more than 1000 inhabitants which makes it one of the smallest towns in Catalonia. Its dramatic location above a basalt cliff bordered by the rivers Fluvià and Toronell fascinates travelers everywhere.
The basalt cliff where the town is situated is over 50 m high and almost a kilometer long. It was formed by the overlaying of two lava flows. The basalt-resulting materials were used both for industrial purposes and decorative elements, such as the pavement of the old town, fireplaces and so on.
