Details

The name Casares is Moorish in origin (It comes from Caxara or Casar meaning fortress) its earliest history dates back to prehistoric man.  Roman presence is evident in the remains of the of the city of Lacipo and remains can also be found at Sierra de la Utrera, Crestellina and Torre de la Sal.  Roman Casares minted its own money and the troops bathed in the sulphurous and alkaline – magnetic waters of the nearby Roman Spa.  Infact, it is believed that Julius Cesar cured his herpes in this water and it was he who ordered the building of the baths you see today.
As with most other Andalucian towns, what is visible in the 21st Century is of Moorish origin.  The remains of the fortress at the top of the hill, which is 420 meters above sea level, were documented by Ibn-Al-Jatib in the 13th century.
In 1485 the Casares surrendered to the Catholic King and Queen after the fall of Ronda.  More recently the town was defended against the French in the 19th Century.
There are many interesting places to visit in the town and nearby.  A couple of places not to miss include the castle, an incredibly steep walk up to it passing through ruins of the original gateways in Calle Arrabal and Calle Villa, and the cemetery located close to the castle, which is constructed in a circular fashion.
