It's a steep climb through the streets of Casares to reach the church but you'll be walking through typical Spanish streets. Once you reach the church there's an amazing view on the surrounding hills and valleys. What's more : most of the time you'll see dozen's of vultures roam the sky looking for food. Great photo opportunities. Don't forget to... More

Walked up to the church having parked the car at the top end of Casares. For me it wasn't a difficult walk but could see it being tiring for elderly or those less fit. However once up there the views are spectacular and good for watching the eagles etc. the church has been restored over the past years and is... More

. Almost totally destroyed in the Spanish Civil War, this was left with just the outside walls and the bell tower standing. The tower was, as in many Andalusian villages, based on the pre-existing minaret from the mosque that had stood here for centuries. Don't let's forget that there was Muslim rule here for 700 years, and Casares, which was... More

I first saw this building back in the 90's when it was sadly falling apart. In 2005 it was renovated and really returned to its full glory. Its now a community centre for the village and is a real asset. There are guded tours around it which cost 3 euros and are half hourly. If you've climbed to the top... More

Whenever we went to the Church it was shut. Today was no exception. The church is located at La Fuente 96 and is adjacent to a large square which has great views.

Was living in the village so became part of every day life. Local funerals were sadly a regular occurance so to celebrate a death was an experience not to be missed.

The Church of La Encarnacion is located at La Fuente, 96. The Franciscan Fathers were the ones who founded the Church of La Encarnacion, built in 1630. The bell tower has a Mudejar design. The ground plan of the church has the form of a cross, with three naves, a vaulted ceiling and a cupola at the crossing. There is... More
