Casares

Situated 17 kilometres from Estepona inland just on the southern tip of the Sierra Crestillina. Casares is a beautiful example of a white washed Spanish village. Pearched on the side of a hill with the church on the top built in the grounds of a Moorish castle. The approach alone is breathtaking with the colour of the tree's against the white washed buildings. Casares is also the birth place of Blas Infante who is considered by many as the father of Andalucua.  There is a museum and cultural centre dedicated to him in the village. If you are looking for a whitewashed Spanish village thats not massive on tourism, loads to explore, steeped in history with fantastic views and walks then this is your place for a day out.

Great place to visit, the view's are stunning it has a great history but best for a day trip. It's not a resort.
