Located in the picturesque foothills of the Sierra de Ronda, Gaucin is a must see for anyone interested in “white villages.” It’s located not far away from another whitewashed village, Casares, so it might be a good idea to visit both on the same day.
Gaucin’s top attraction is the Moorish Castillo del Aguila, perched right above the village. It sits 626 metres above sea level, so spectacular views of Gibraltar and the Moroccan mountains are guaranteed on a clear day.
Gaucin tends to be very quiet all year round, as not many tourists remember about this beautiful place. Artists, birdwatchers and hikers visit Gaucin most often. There are hundreds of kilometres of pathways, some of them signposted some of them wild, that lead through varied magical landscape.
If you are looking for a remote romantic getaway, want to esacpe the hustle and bustle of the busy city life, or simply get closer to nature, make sure to visit Gaucin.
