‪We ignored the temptation to short cut the main road using a very steep smaller road which could have trapped us if it was blocked, and after winding around a bit the main road led to the main square of Casares at the middle of which sits this Carlos III Fountain. Carlos III was a king of either Castille or all of Spain (I suspect just Castille) so my guess is that it dates from the 1300's. Like much of Casares, the fountain is pretty but I couldn't describe it as exceptional.‬

‪In the center of Casares is a square-as it usually is and in the middle of the square is a fountain. I can't say as it usually is since some square is decorated with a flowerbed, others with a statue, but the good people of Casares decided that they commemorate their reformer king, Carlos III with a fountain. Now I can play with the possibilities, that in their choice was some symbolism, namely, that Carlos was the well of wisdom, but it is also possible, that it was just practical to have a fountain there on hot summer days.‬

‪All roads lead into Casares' town square and in the middle of the square is the Carlos III fountain. It is a pretty square but not worth a trip on its own. Be sure to wander some of the narrow streets and alleyways of Casares and walk up to the castle for some great views.‬

‪The fountain isn't an attraction in itself but being in the centre of the village you can't miss it. As it serves as a roundabout as well its tight turns make watching drivers negotiate it a viewing sport in itself. The major benefit is that it's a place to fill up your water bottles with fresh spring water and not rely on the shops for another bottle. If you look at the picture I can recommend the restaurant facing you!‬

‪This plaza is where all the town folk tend to meet up in the early evening.
the birds come out at dusk and swoop all around as the chatter of conversation drowns out any vehicle coming through.
Quite a few places to sit and drink whilst people watching‬

This was once, of course, the main water supply of the village.

And it still runs with fresh clear clean drinkable water. You can refill your water bottle here with no worries.

Sited in the centre of the tiny main square, this is a good landmark if you separate from your friends to wander - and get lost - among the maze of tiny streets. Some of them are pedestrian only, others cars are allowed if they belong to residents, and you have to squeeze tight against the house walls if one comes past.

Just metres away from the fountain is the bust in honour of Blas Infante, cause of the 1976 Siege of Casares, when on orders from Franco's Government, the Civil Guard cut off the access roads to Casares and let nobody in or out, to prevent the Mayor holding a ceremony in honour of Blas Infante. People came instead on foot, on horseback or with a mule or donkey, using the old country footpaths and muletracks to avoid the roadblocks.

1976. Not that long ago!

Have a nice cool drink while you're here.

‪The Fountain of the Three Graces was the work of Jose Maria Sanchez in the 19th century. The present location is at the end of the park. The fountain has three parts and two cups with three figures of women with a classical design and made of marble. The pedestal is triangular and there are figures of boys seated over swans and garlands.‬

‪Casares is a typical Spanish white village of this region. It is a lovely village to explore with many interesting features, one of which is the Carlos III fountain. It's situated in the centre of Casares, was built in 1785 and spouts fresh mountain water. It's also a traffic hazard!
Casares is worth the drive to visit - we spent several hours there exploring and having a meal.
Recommended.‬

‪Set in the centre of Casares, a beautiful Andalusian white village, this fountain squats there looking like a giant chess piece. Apart from making it difficult for traffic to get round the square, it is an ideal place for the elderly to sit and enjoy the sun.‬
