CASARES : THE CHARM OF AN ANDALUSIAN TYPICAL VILLA
This municipality adjoining the province of Cádiz is the perfect example of a white Andalucian town. Casares extends through the southernmost part of the Serranía de Ronda, hence its configuration of narrow steep streets and its hanging and whitewashed houses that give it a unique and special charm for which it is considered one of the most beautiful municipalities in the province and known as the Hanging People.
It is located at an altitude of 435 meters above sea level and extends along 14 km to its pristine beaches. It has an area of 162 km2 and is only 50 km from Marbella and 47 km from Gibraltar airport.
