Top 4 Recommendations in Gaucin
The Castle of the Eagle stands imposing on a mound of 688 meters. It is made up of three enclosures. The first and largest served as a refuge for the population and livestock. In it is the hermitage of the Holy Child Jesus and the old hospital. The second enclosure has two cisterns, one at each end. And the third precinct is the citadel. But although the building is really interesting, the visit is only worth it for being able to contemplate the spectacular views of the area.2. Fall in love with the landscapes of the Via Ferrata de Gaucin
The Via Ferrata de Gaucin is located on the natural balcony of the Genal Valley and offers breathtaking views of the entire countryside of Gibraltar, the Guadiaro Valley, the Sierra de las Nieves, Sierra Bermeja, Morocco and the Mediterranean Sea. However, it is not suitable for the most inexperienced. Its two suspension bridges and its 30 metre zip line on the ground make it a real gem for those looking for strong sensations.3. Impress yourself with their traditions at the "Valle del Genal Cork Flamenco Festival"
This Festival of Flamenco Singing has its origin in 1997, when many fans of the region celebrated an event of this type in the Castle of the Eagle. Since then it has been held every year without exception. It receives its name because at this time is when they uncork the cork oaks, very typical of this land. It is so important that it has been declared a Provincial Tourist Singularity Festival.4. Try the exquisite sour orange gazpacho and the leg stew
The cuisine of Gaucin has many similarities with the cuisine of the rest of Andalusia, but with certain Arab influences that are noted above all in its reporting. If you visit the town, don't miss the opportunity to try typical dishes such as gazpacho de naranja agria, stew with legs, migas and moraga. But it is their desserts that achieve the greatest fame and prestige: their almond roscos, their white roscos and their alfajores.
