Major Tourist Attractions
The ruins of the Moorish castle sit atop a steep hill and attract a lot of
interest. Nearby are the ruins of the Hermitage of Vera Cruz which has some
beautiful architecture remaining and gives breathtaking views. On your descent
down the hill is the Casares Museum, a small collection of historical artefacts
that have been found around the town. There are also a few churches which are
worth a browse around to admire some historical Spanish architecture. The hilly
terrain will be a great adventure for those who love mountain biking, walking or
hiking. There are several championship golf courses within a short distance. In
the area of Estepona there is a horse riding school, a tennis club and beaches
which offer water sports. Estepona will excite those who love their history.
There is a 6th century basilica and 3rd century Roman baths to be explored.
Casares has several shops which are able to cater for the everyday needs of
residents and visitors. Hop on over to Estepona to enjoy browsing the shops in
the Calle Real and Calle Terraza shopping areas. Here you will find many items
on offer, including shoes, clothing, souvenirs, sunglasses, electrical items,
toys, pottery and bags. Marbella’s Golden Mile is not far away from Casares and
is a shopper’s paradise. Here you will find many designer outlets and smart
boutiques offering top-of-the-range and expensive items.
Eating Out and Nightlife
Casares has several good bars, cafés and restaurants, all serving a range of
traditional Spanish cuisine as well as some local specialities. For those with a
more discerning palate, you will find several eateries which have dishes from
countries including Britain, France and Italy. All can be washed down with some
refreshing beers and wines.
There are no nightclubs or discos in the town; those who wish to party until the
early hours will have to take the half hour trip to the bright lights of
Marbella. Evenings in Casares are spent strolling up and down the steep streets
and admiring the views with a bottle of wine.
