Gaucin is one of the white villages in the Serrania de Ronda, the range of mountains in the province of Malaga inland from Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona and half an hour from Ronda. Gaucin is known for its sweeping views down to Gibraltar, the Strait of Gibraltar and Morocco, the mythical Pillars of Hercules, as well as the surrounding mountain scenery of a wild natural beauty. Lying 600 metres above sea level, it is presided by the Castillo del Águila, a castle that was once a Roman stronghold and expanded by the Arabs.
Gaucin has been the inspiration for many artists and writers. The art collective Art Gaucín holds an open studios event once a year and many exhibitions through the year. There is a Gaucin Writers group that publish a short story anthology once a year and holds creative writing classes, seminars and retreats. The expansive countryside surrounding the village is criss-crossed by walking trails and there is a well established group of walkers who take to the hills every week. There are many local festivities through the year, including the reenaction of the taking of Gaucin by the French napoleonic troops.
It is serviced by several good bars and restaurants, has plenty of shops for essentials, antiques and handmade goods as well as a health food shop.
Well connected by road to Malaga, the Costa del Sol and Gibraltar, it also has a train station in the village of Colmenar lower in the valley that connects you to Algeciras, Ronda and from there to Madrid and Malaga by fast train.
