- Why Casares?
Casares is a pleasant town on the Costa del Sol, where the Spanish culture is still clearly present. We can divide Casares into the white authentic village, which lies a bit inland and the more modern coastal area. It is an attraction for golfers, but also culture lovers will certainly feel at home here. Since there are many cultural activities every year, there is always something to do here!
One of the most famous monuments in Casares village is El Castillo. This is located next to the picturesque village and is partly preserved. According to Arab sources, this castle was built around the 13th century and served as a communication point between Manilva and Estepona. This is definitely worth a visit!
In and around Casares there is a lot of history to sniff at, including La Iglesia de la Encarnación. Together with the castle it is located at the highest point of Casares. This church was built around the 16th century, but was damaged during the Spanish Civil War after which it became a ruin. It was rebuilt in 2006 and since then it has served as a cultural center.
Along the church and the castle there are several hiking trails where there are other nice sights to see. In addition, from the hills in Casares you have a beautiful view of the coastline!
3. Culinary delights
There is certainly no shortage of gastronomy in Casares. Would you like to have lunch with a view of the sea, or would you rather dine among the beautiful hilly landscape? That is definitely possible here!
A nice restaurant that we definitely recommend in Casares is Sarmiento – Braza Andaluza. This is a very well known restaurant that offers a unique experience of Andalusian cuisine, and where the grill is central.
Another recommendation is El Jardin de Lutz at Finca Cortesin. Here you find a relaxed and elegant atmosphere, where you can enjoy the Spanish cuisine with a view of the Mediterranean Sea.
Would you like to eat something along the coast? Then we suggest Bahía Beach! Here you can enjoy delicious dishes on their terrace along the beach.
Casares can be divided into Casares Pueblo, where the authentic Spanish culture is still clearly present, and Casares Costa, which is more modernized. For these reasons most expats go to the coast, because there is more new construction to be found there. Casares is in general a quiet area where you can enjoy nature and culture. You’ll find all basic facilities and it is not far from the bustling Estepona.
Casares is not immediately known for a busy nightlife, but you can certainly enjoy a delicious cocktail in one of the bars. Would you like an evening out to party? Then we recommend you to head in the direction of Estepona.
There is certainly no shortage of artisan shops in Casares. Here you can buy a lot of handmade products such as bags and shoes and there are also small bakeries and grocery stores in abundance. However, would you like to visit some more commercial stores? Then you should go to Estepona or Puerto Banús.
