Gaucin, a typical Andalucian pueblo blanco, built high in the hills (620m above sea level) and having stunning views to the Costa del Sol coastline, was thought to have been built back in the Roman times but, like many other towns in the area, it really came into it's own during the occupation by the Moors.
Within the town, there are a number of good bars and restaurants and there are narrow streets with flowers trailing from the balconies.
The area is surrounded by olive and almond groves and is ideal for walkers and birdwatchers - having the advantage of being on a major migratory route from Europe to Africa.
Guided walks are available for those who prefer to explore on foot and there are also riding stables near the village.
A Roman road leads down to the Rio Genal, the river which flows through the valley below, between banks lined by oleanders.
You can swim or fish in the deep pools of this particularly clean river.
