Casares Village

The origins of Casares trace back to ancient Roman times, with legend intertwining with history in a tale of Julius Caesar's purported healing at the renowned Baths of La Hedionda. It is said that in gratitude for his recovery, Caesar ordered the construction of the town, thus marking the genesis of Casares. Perched majestically atop a rugged hill, the imposing 12th-century castle stands as a silent sentinel, overlooking the labyrinthine streets and alleys that wind their way down the hillside to form the quaint village below.

Accessing this idyllic haven is a journey in itself, as the winding road from the A7 coast road offers travellers breathtaking vistas of the surrounding countryside. Along the way, traditional Andalusian eateries known as ventas tempt passersby with tantalising local cuisine and wines, enhancing the journey with sensory delights. For those venturing from Manilva, the route inland along the A-377 provides yet another opportunity to behold the stunning beauty of the Casares valley unfolding before their eyes.

Casares is renowned as one of the most photographed towns in Andalucia, and its allure extends beyond the confines of the village, stretching down to Casares Costa. Here, historical treasures such as the iconic Torre del Sal (Salt Tower) stand as testaments to the area's rich past, inviting visitors to delve deeper into its storied history and captivating beauty. Whether exploring the narrow cobblestone streets of the village or basking in the coastal splendour of Casares Costa, a journey to Casares promises an unforgettable experience steeped in history, culture, and natural beauty.
