CASARES

Casares is a picture postcard village with a population of just three thousand and the view from the approach is worth a photo.

To say that Casares is beautiful is an understatement. Most of the white villages are beautiful but there is something incredibly 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.

Casares is a pleasant white village to stroll around. Visit Blas Infante birthplace, Iglesia de San Sebastian, near the square or climb up via Puerta Calle Arrabal, to the Castle, ruined church, Iglesia de la Encarnación now Centro Cultural Blas Infante, old cemetery.  There are also number of signed walks just outside the village.  Further afield there are beaches such as the Playa de la Sal which allows dogs and are beautiful and well kept. There are also golf courses in Casares and neighbouring towns. 

There are several sign-posted (from the road) walks just outside the village that take you to the top of adjacent hills for even better views of the white village. Sierra Cristilina is a longer one and a natural area.  The walk down the river valley to Manilva is also popular

In May, the Pilgrimage of Virgin de Rosario del Campo. the image of the virgin is taken from the church of San Sebastian 11km to the hermitage of Rosario del Campo on the other side of the river Genal.  

There is a 20 stall Street marked in Calle Copera on Friday mornings 08.00 to 14.00
