Casares is a white village of Arab origin that has been designated as a Historical-Artistic Site. It is perched between Costa del Sol, Serranía de Ronda and Campo de Gibraltar. Its main attractions are the quaint streets, the ruins of the Medieval castle and the Birthplace of Blas Infante. In addition, Casares has a 2km coastline, a couple of fine golf courses and a beautiful natural environment.
To say that Casares is beautiful is an understatement. Most of the white villages are beautiful but there is something very special about the sight of Casares that causes the visitor to park the car and simply stare or take a photo. There are the sugar cubes again, piled precariously high and just nudging the battlements of an Arab castle. It is hard to believe that this enchanting, typical village is only nine miles from the hustle and bustle of the coast and somehow succeeded in avoiding the coach tour circuit.
