Ronda is a small, but impressive Andalusian town that is located in a spectacular setting that is divided in two by a deep ravine (El Tajo).  This is spanned by several bridges, including the impressive 18th century Puente Nuevo (New Bridge), which is 210 feet long and 360 feet deep.   Ronda’s old walled town is quite picturesque with its crooked, narrow streets and historic buildings.

Ronda is also considered to be the birthplace of modern bullfighting – home to Francisco Romero, who developed the rules of bullfighting during the 18th century.   The 18th century Plaza de Toros bullring could hold up to 6,000 spectators and is one of the most beautiful in Spain.   It is rarely used today, but you can catch fights there annually.

Ronda is located in Andalusia in southern Spain. You can visit easily by flying into Malaga international airport, which is currently being enlarged. Ronda is situated inland from the coast, up on a high rocky crag - or rather two. There are several bridges spanning the gorge, and one can get simply amazing views from the upper town. The town is also surrounded by well preserved medieval Moorish walls and there are many religious sights such as churches to see. You can also go to the Bull ring if you interested in seeing the local culture, whilst the buildings are a very unique blend of traditional Spanish and exotic Moorish architecture. The town is surrounded by stunning countryside dominated by vineyards and olive groves, whilst this is all put in perspective by the snow capped mountain peaks which circle the plain on several sides of the town. Parking is limited in the narrow historical streets located with in the walls, so you are advised to park near the base of the hill where there is a large park square - although this means you have to walk around all the sights!

Ronda is a beautiful place to visit while in Andalucia's region of Spain. Been there for half of the day, could have stayed for more, unfortunately did not have enough time to. Loads of things to see including incredible bridge, The Bullring, Alcazaba, loads of little museums and places to eat. Just wonderful historical place. If you are checking pictures on GoogleMap, seems noone did bother to put decent pictures of the place, as it is actually magnificent. Not sure about nightlife there though, an educational daytrip to Ronda was perfect.

Go see Ronda! it's a small, rather cold city in the mountains of suthern Spain where you can wander along the streets and visit the arabian baths, the cave and of course get a great view of the magnificent bridge and all other things. Ronda also has shopping opportunities and a lovely park
