Ronda is noble and exciting at the same time. This little town in the heart of Andalusia keeps an old town feeling, is full of attractions, and hides a secret that will surprise you, an impressive Gorge in the middle of the city, known as “The tajo de Ronda” or “the cut of Ronda”. Ronda offers tradition, beautiful narrow streets, magnificent monuments and an exquisite cuisine.
Strolling down the streets of Ronda is a pleasure to the senses because every corner offers something especial. The city possesses an impressive artistic heritage, monuments of great beauty and a bridge that stands out and is called the new bridge. It is not just a bridge you see in any city, it is a spectacular stone bridge 100 meters above the river Guadiaro… beautiful and impressive and it divides the city. Ronda that is located at the edge of two cliffs is an image that will be imprinted on your mind forever.
Next to the New Bridge is the bullring Plaza of Toros Real Maestranza of Cavalry, one of the oldest and most beautiful ones in Spain, and the Alameda del Tajo Park, ideal for romantic walks.
The streets of the historic center of Ronda are typically Andalusian; narrow, cobbled and flanked by traditional houses, many of them stately and magnificent.
Ronda is also nature. If you visit the Serrania de Ronda you will meet a wonderful natural environment, in which you can practice all kinds of sports and outdoor activities, like, BBT, canyoning, hiking, bird watching…
