One of the most charming aspects of Manilva is that, despite
its prime location on the coast, there is a refreshing lack
of high-rise construction. Therefore, although tourists are
just starting to discover the village (with good reason) it
remains intrinsically Spanish.
The town has a fascinating history, which dates back to
Roman times, and, still today, there are some remarkably
well-preserved roman sulphur baths.
One of the most interesting historical monuments here, aside
from the Roman Baths, is the Church of Santa Ana, which dates
back to the lat 17th Century. Shortly thereafter, the Castle
of Duquesa was built which was completed in the 18th Century.
Manilva boasts several wines unique to the area, both dry

chiringuitos here that are renowned for their excellent seafood
and fish dishes. Manilva is an intriguing, interesting village,

close to Casares
and the increasingly popular Puerto
