Roman Baths – Banos de la Hedionda Casares

Visit Estepona

Roman Baths Casares

Legends attribute their origin to Julius Caesar himself, when he was praetor, who relieved a herpetic disease in its waters and ordered their construction. What is certain is that his troops bathed in its waters waiting for the confrontation with Pompey and found relief from skin diseases. The baths area has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest.

They say that here the devil exhaled his last breath when he was expelled by Santiago. This is one of the legends that the popular imagination keeps to justify the smell of sulfur in the waters. Those known as Baños de la Hedionda, an Asset of Cultural Interest, constitute one of the historical landmarks of the Utrera massif and in general of all of Casares.

These are Ferruginous Sulfur Baths, located in a beautiful and advantageous spot, which man has known how to take advantage of since Roman times. The spa area, square, with a spherical vault with pendentives and two barrel vaults, is located on the right bank of the Albarrán stream and very close to the border with the municipality of Manilva.
