Inhabitants of caves

Sea caves. Grutas marinas. Digital painting by Myriam B. Mahiques

¨the old potentate determined on reform and, setting vigorously to work, ejected whole nests of vagabonds out of the fortress and the gypsy caves with which the surrounding hills are honey combed.¨
W. Irving. Tales of the Alhambra. Governor Manco and the soldier. P. 249. Granada, edition of 1994

W. Irving´s words made me think. In an urban morphology analysis, should we consider the inhabited caves surrounding the city?
What´s the geographical extents of the analysis?
