Nature and hiking trails in Casares
The second thing that stands out when you arrive in Casares is the immense Crestallina mountain range at the back of the town, and the amount of griffon vultures and eagles that fly over the area.
There are an infinite amount of hiking trails in Casares. We especially recommend the circular route Casares-El Refugio-Sierra de Crestellina.
This route sets off from the entrance road to the city, and offers some spectacular views, with the town of Casares in the background, surrounded by Gall oaks, holm oaks and pine trees.
Once you get up the mountain range, you will surely catch sight of the majestic griffon vultures, eagles and kestrels, just a few meters away.
Tip: You can start this route from the first lane you encounter on the road, which is the official starting point, OR you can do the hike reversed. This way, you will have to climb up the hardest and steepest part of the route, instead of descending it, which is more difficult and might even be dangerous.
