Always worth the hike up the hill to the castle for the views and to watch the kestrels hovering over the gorge, the castle has a small museum dedicated to the Roman history associated with the area and also hosts occasional concerts

While there's not much to the ruins of Casares Castle it is still worth a walk up to get great views of the town and surrounding area and to see some of the whitewashed homes and narrow alleyways. It's easy to find and be sure...More
