Admire the stark white buildings and scenic hilltop vistas that characterize Casares, a mountain town known as the birthplace of the father of Andalusian nationalism. A knowledgeable local guide delights you with informative commentary as you explore the town's narrow, winding streets.
Start with a convenient pickup from your hotel and a drive inland from the Costa del Sol that brings you to Casares, where you're greeted by the town's many white, red-roofed buildings. Perched on a hilltop, the town offers stunning 360-degree views of the mountainous, pine tree-covered landscape that surrounds it. It is celebrated as the birthplace of Blas Infante, a politician, writer, and historian known for his role in shaping Andalusia's nationalist movement.
After learning about Infante and seeing his birthplace, take a stroll through the main square and see San Sebastian Church. Pass a beautiful fountain on your way to the oldest part of the town, with your guide revealing fascinating anecdotes and legends all along the way. Sights of well-preserved Muslim ruins dot the area, including an imposing Moorish wall and castle and scenic gorge.
Your adventure ends with a relaxing ride back to your hotel.
