With its whitewashed houses and typical streets, Gaucín clings to a rocky hillock in the heart of the Serranía de Ronda. Perched at the top, the Castillo del Águila, built in the 9C in the Caliphate era, surveys the superb panoramic views over the sea and the Serranía de Ronda. It was at the foot of the castle, in 1309, that Guzmán el Bueno was killed; he was one of the medieval Spanish heroes of the Reconquista. The village is also famed for its vino de mosto and artisanal brandy.
