Gaucin property for sale and homes, villas & apartments in Gaucin


Gaucin is a spectacularly beautiful mountain village commanding sweeping views to Gibraltar and North Africa. The village is a gateway to the Serranía de Ronda where, depending on the time of year, you can enjoy an impressionist palette of colour: brilliant brush strokes of red poppies, yellow mimosa, purple wild orchids, tempered by the cool green of olive groves and occasional splash of pale pink almond blossom. Indeed, Gaucin is famous for its international artists' community.

The town has a population of less than 2,000, and its narrow medieval streets and tall, narrow houses are sprawled picturesquely over two hills and the adjoining land between them. Perched high above the deep River Genal valley, Gaucin is overlooked by the imposing the Sierra del Hacho mountain. The village is 626m above sea level.

As you would expect from the name, it is not unusual to see eagles circling the towers here, and kestrels nest in the walls of the convent. Gaucin, like many other birding sites in this part of Andalucia, has plaques around the town showing both native and migrating birds which can be seen in the vicinity.



Celebrations take place in a marquee erected in Plaza de la Fuente with the usual Carnival queen, chirigotas, and municipal band.


There is an important Palm Sunday procession to the church as part of Holy Week. A vigil takes place in the church the night before.


This bull-run takes place on Easter Sunday (Resurrection). The old town is sealed off from Calle Luis de Armiñan. At 10.30 in the morning the Mayor signals the release of a bull - tethered by a long rope tied to its horns - into the village, by setting off a firework rocket. Several hundred villagers and tourists positioned on the carerra (course) dare to get close to the animal, and then turn and run out of the way or climb onto window ledges when the bull charges. It is a village version of the San Fermines in Pamplona - the visitor is probably in more danger from being trampled by the running crowd than the bull itself. At 13.00 the bull is corralled into a patio where it is auctioned.


La Noche de San Juan (24 June) is celebrated with a romeria (outdoor party) at a spot 2km along the Ronda road, with food, music, dancing and horse-racing. A family-oriented event.


The summer feria lasts for several days in early August, and takes place at the Recinto Ferial. A bullfight normally takes place in a specially-erected temporary bullring outside the town.


A feast in honour of Santo Niño (Holy Child) and San Juan de Dios starts on the last Sunday in August and last until the big celebrations of 7 and 8 September. The image of the Holy Child is taken from its home in the castle in a procession down to the Ermita (Hermitage) in the woods (at Finca la Adelfilla), the site of his supposed apparition in 1536, for a rociero mass followed by both solemn vigils and dancing, singing, eating and drinking (see our related videos). See 'Walk of Tiger' which takes this route.


Gaucin is delightful village, to just stroll around in the sunshine and here we have highlighted the curiosities of the village. Walk into the village on Calle Luis de Armiñan, past the Convento de los Carmelitas, built in the 18th century and abandoned in 1835. Now owned by the town hall, this is used as a civic building and sometimes holds art exhibitions by the many artists living and working in the town.

Don´t miss the view from the small Parque de la Alameda located just after the convent on the right hand side. A little further on, you will pass 'Florita's house' (number 92) which, as its name suggests, displays an impressive array of flower pots. Turn right in the triangular Plaza Santo Vino then into Calle Toledilo, passing the 1628 baroque fountain Fuente de los 6 Caños, with six classical faces somewhat eroded by time. You are now in the main square called Plaza de la Fuente. Stop at bar Casa Antonia to catch up on the local gossip.

Continue out to Plaza Guzman el Bueno where the town hall is located opposite La Taberna del Zorro. Turning into Calle Larga you will see the Iglesia de San Sebastian, build after the reconquest on the site of a mosque. The church's façade is red and white, with a renaissance appearance, constructed from brick with a triangular pediment. The tower is square, with a solid construction bell chamber and pyramid roof. Inside, the church has three naves separated by pillars supporting semicircular arches. Above the main altar are three golden figures, including San Sebastian and the Virgin de la Nieves, the patron saint of Gaucin.

At the end of Calle Larga continue towards the Castillo del Aguila (Eagle's Castle) which consists of a series of fortifications built across a rocky ridge above the village. The castle, which is of Roman origin, and was reinforced by the Moors, is located on top of a hill whose east and south slopes are practically impregnable. Leave the castle compound by the west gate and visit the cemetery next.

The cemetery is one of the most interesting and best kept in the area. Remains are placed in niches in the walls rather than underground, as in most cemeteries in Andalucia, and some are very old. There is an interesting Parthenon with old residents alongside some more recent arrivals. A panel of ceramic tiles at the entrance reminds us cryptically that "la muerte no es vida continua y todo esta bien". (Death is carries on and everything is all right).

Over the road from cemetery is the mirador. This is very pleasant, with paths and gardens and a panoramic view of Penas Blancas, Los Reales, Sierra Crestellina, Sierra El Hacho, Gibraltar, and across the Straits of Gibraltar to Africa.

If you are walking, you will have to return the way you came. If, however, you risked driving through the narrow streets, then due to the one-way system you will need to return via Calle Alta, past the old communal lavadero, and exit the village on the north bypass road.
