It is advisable to visit the most outstanding monument for its historical and artistic value in this municipality which is the Castle of the Duchess or Fortín de Sabinillas, built on the site that must have occupied the aforementioned Roman villa.


From its location you can see a large area of the coast, which is why it was built there in 1767, to defend the area from continuous pirate raids.

The construction was carried out by a resident of Seville, Francisco Paulino, who was paid by the king to command a cavalry company.

Also get to know more about Casares

The town of Casares is situated between the Serranía de Ronda and the Costa del Sol, is one of the Andalusian villages located on the mountain.

The municipality stretches between the Costa del Sol, to which it belongs, the Serranía de Ronda and the Campo de Gibraltar, so the region has a variety of landscapes for having characteristics that make up each of these areas, although it has more characteristics of mountainous terrain.

Casares is a municipality that opens out onto the sea enjoying two kilometres of beach and forms part of the tourist offer of the towns on the Costa del Sol.

The municipality has urban characteristics of Arab origin, it has a great beauty and proof of this is that it has been declared a historical-artistic site since 1978.

Casares has an outstanding position that allows it to have unique natural spaces, whose orography is linked to the Serrania de Ronda.


In the municipality of Casares we find the Sierra Bermeja, a protected natural park, where you can see griffon vultures or the traditional green and beautiful Spanish firs of this ecological environment.

The Roman presence is demonstrated by the remains found in the Cortijo de Alechipe, which are believed to have belonged to the Roman city of Lacipo.

In the year 61 B.C., Julius Caesar was in Casares, being a praetor in Spain, and the tradition tells that in the sulphurous and alkaline-magnetic baths of the Hedionda and the Duke, he was cured of a hepatic condition he suffered.

But the present urban centre owes its origin to the Arab culture. At that time it was a walled town with two gates, one on Calle Villa, where some remains are kept, and the other on Calle Arrabal.

The Muslim mark remains in the village’s framework, with streets with an Arabic flavour such as Callejón del Rey, Calle Villa and the streets of Calle Arrabal, as well as in the toponymy: Benamorabe, La Alquería, Cerro del Moro or Almáchar.

For some historians, Casares derives from “Caxara”, a fortress in Arabic, while for others he derives it from the name “Caesar” (Caesar, political and military Roman leader).

The ruins of the fortress are still preserved from the Muslim period. Ruins belonging to an Arab castle dating from the 13th century and some remains of the ancient wall that surrounded the town are also preserved.
