Ronda

Ronda, a striking and picturesque town in Southern Spain, has a fascinating blend of history, architecture and natural beauty. Perched above a deep gorge and surrounded by multiple mountain ranges, Ronda offers breathtaking views that have captivated travellers for centuries.


With routes that trace back to Roman times, Ronda has many historical sights. Its most notable landmark would have to be the 18th century “Puente Nuevo”, a 98m high bridge made of stone from “El Tajo” gorge that connects the old town to the new town.


The old town is a maze of narrow cobbled streets, traditional white washed buildings and charming little plazas. The Moorish influence is abundant with the stunning Arab baths and old defence walls showcasing some of the great cultural diversity available.


Ronda's bullring, Plaza de Toros is famous for being one of the oldest and one of the most elegant in Spain. It carries a significant place in the history of bullfighting and has a museum dedicated to the tradition.


The town's beauty and charm have won the hearts of some of the most prestigious writers and creatives over the years such as Rainer Maria Rilke, Ernest Hemingway and Orsen Wells who found inspiration from Ronda and its captivating landscape.


Surrounded by rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards, Ronda is also the gateway to the Pueblos Blanco (White Villages). Its proximity to Grazalema Natural Park and Sierra de las Nieves National Park provides the perfect opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts to explore—the ideal location to start a cycling adventure or hiking holiday.


In summary, Ronda is a timeless gem, where history, architecture and nature seamlessly blend, offering an unforgettable experience for those lucky enough to explore.
