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.

Church of La Encarnacion
Built in the 16th century over an Arab Moorish mosque the church stands at the highest point of Casares. The church fell into ruin but was restored in 2005 to become a cultural centre and small museum for the town. For more information and directions to the cultural centre click / tap the image.
This is the main street into Casares, there is parking as you enter the village which is advisable to take as there is very little parking there after. The view of Casares from this street is stunning showing off Casares at its best. For more information and directions to the Calle Casares click / tap the image.
This is a great location for walking, hiking and taking in the natural beauty of the area. This is a proper white washed spanish village with a great history.
It's not a family holiday resort and it's a good drive from the airport.
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.
