DAYHIKES
Date: Thursday, 21st September 2017

From the Roman baths to Casares, one of the most picturesque white village of Andalusia

casares1The hike starts and ends at the "Baños Romanos", a very old sulphur source, where the legend says that even Julius Caesar already has had a healing bath there. If you follow his steps you will experience a pretty strong smelling, but very refreshing and healthy bath, in the most unusual historical place in the middle of nowhere.

Passing a gorge with spectacular rock-formations and old mills in the valley, high up to the famous white village of Casares and up to the castle, with a fantastic view over the coast.
