Ronda is well known as the ‘town of dreams’ in its location at the Serranía de Ronda mountain range. It is close at the canyon’s edge which makes its position most exciting and panoramic. The canyon is 70 m wide and 120 m deep.

Every tourist who visited Ronda would give it all praises although it is 60 km from Marbella. There are numerous narrow mountain streets to pass through before Ronda looms mystically before their very eyes. Its appearance never fails to awe its beholders.

Picturesque

There is basically one word to describe Ronda – picturesque. Every sight leading to Ronda is stunning natural landscape with the breathtaking bridge crossing over to this town. Beautiful environment aside, there is the local stone bullring that is unique in the whole of Spain.

The various Moorish architectural structures stand as a reminder to past glories while the modern structures in Ronda like its large central square presents modern facilities and amenities such as restaurants and shops.

The surrounding mountain range poses to be awesome and majestic in the background to give Ronda the panoramic display and freshness. Ronda also sports a Mercadillo quarter that sprouted alongside the Christian re-conquest; there are some ancient monuments which showcase the times of old such as the well preserved inn and the most ancient building; the 16th century Posada de las Ánimas.

Ronda has a plaza that was established in the 18th century Plaza de Toros near Plaza de España. These are located at aesthetically lovely cliff-top paseo where one can enjoy great views of some bridges in Ronda.

Traditions

Ronda is very much involved in the traditions of Spain such as the famous bull fights; this was where the tradition was birthed. The corrida ring was built in the year 1781 as one of Spain’s earliest structure.

There are all kinds of festivals celebrated in Ronda with the September corrida goyesca fiesta in honor of Goya; one of Spain’s astounding artists who painted many excellent bull fight paintings at Ronda. The festival is celebrated in true tradition style in 18th century costume. Visitors are allowed into the bullring for a view; the museum inside showcases history and interesting pieces of tools used in the tradition and festival.

One may cringe at viewing Puente Nuevo which was a town prison that was last used in the Civil War. Hemingway purportedly recorded the incident of prisoners thrown alive down the steep gorges in his bestseller “For Whom the Bell Tolls”.
