Casares is a typical Spanish white village with fantastic views across the Mediterranean Sea. It is situated only a short drive from the coast.
Casares is located half way between the Costa del Sol and the Serrania of Ronda mountains at 410 metres above sea level. It has a population of 3,100 and yet only nine miles from the hustle and bustle of the coast.

When driving along the coast road, take exit at Km. 147 (between Estepona and Sabinillas) and head inland for 15 km. The scenery is picturesque especially the spectacular view of the village in the distance with its Medieval fortress.
Sightseeing should include the old Roman spa from the Hedionda, the Ferrete caves once inhabited by Palaeolithic man, the birthplace of the lawyer Blas Infante (1885-1936) and the ruins of an Arab fort.
Plenty of parking is available on the outskirts of the village, but the roads are steep and narrow, weaving and climbing around the central plaza with its small bars and pretty fountain.
Keep climbing and eventually you will have reached the top of the town of some 1,400 feet above sea level. Here you will find an old fortress here and a derelict church and enjoy picturesque views over the village rooftops. You may also see Peregrine falcons and kestrels and, on a clear day, the African coast with the Rock of Gibraltar looming craggily in the foreground.
On and near the central plaza, there are a number of taverns, one of which has a rooftop terrace. Look out for the statue of "Blas Infante", the founder of Andalucia, who was born in Casares.
