MONUMENTS

Casares Castle is an essential stop in this municipality. It is located in the highest part of the village and was erected by the Arabs, who took advantage of the steep limestone massif on which it was built to complete the building"s defense. From its highest point, the castle dominates the valleys, hills and coastal plains that stretch from the Serrania de Ronda to the Bay of Algeciras and the Rock of Gibraltar. Some towers remain, along with sections of walls and two gates known as the Arrabal and Villa arches, which is home to the Ethnology and History Museum.

Many tourists also begin their visit to Casares with Casa Natal Blas Infante (Blas Infante"s birthplace), which provides an insight into the life of the most important character in the recovery of the Andalusian identity, thanks to the fragments of his life and works are still preserved inside. In addition, its rooms house temporary exhibitions with pieces by local artists. The building is also one of the tourist offices of the municipality.

The Encarnación church, built in the late sixteenth century, deserves another visit for its Mudéjar-influenced bell tower and its rear patio, which once belonged to the convent. The Hermitage of Saint Sebastian, built in the seventeenth century, is home to the image of Our Lady of the Rosary of the fields, the patron saint of Casares.
