Located between Genal Valley and the Costa del Sol, the village of Casares is one of the Andalusian white villages that definitely deserve a visit. Historic monuments, museums, typically Andalusian streets, ecological sites, beaches and local cuisine are some the offers of this beautiful municipality.
Casares retains many more monuments and remains of interest in the town itself, which is distinguished since three decades as a Historic-Artistic Site. To that nomination contributed largely the whitewashed houses, which fit neatly onto the rugged hillside on which the village is situated, crowned by the remains of what was an Arab castle.
Precisely in this historic setting takes place this weekend a new edition of the Artisan Market. Considered one of the most important and ancient markets in Andalusia, this event offers visitors one of the best medieval atmospheres amid the walls of the castle. From today until Sunday you can see and buy crafts and sample traditional cuisine. There have been as well organized workshops, musical performances and other leisure activities for the occasion.
Casares is situated close to Estepona on the western Costa del Sol, 55 km from Marbella.
